England coach Gareth Southgate has recalled Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw and Liverpool defender Joe Gomez to the National Team squad as they prepare to face Spain in the new UEFA Nations League at Wembley.
England will then play a friendly against Switzerland at Leicester’s King Power Stadium a few days later.
