Jack Wilshere gets an England recall but Oxlade-Chamberlain misses out



Jack Wilshere has been recalled to the England squad to face Scotland and Spain this month.

The Three Lions face Scotland in a World Cup qualifier at Wembley on Friday, before playing a friendly against Spain on Tuesday at the national stadium.

Wilshere may have come in for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who has been left out by interim manager Gareth Southgate.

Andros Townsend keeps his place in the squad after being brought in to replace the injured Raheem Sterling last time round.

Other notable players to miss out include Tottenham’s Dele Alli, who also missed the north London derby with an injury, as well as Everton’s Ross Barkley and West Ham’s Michail Antonio – both seemingly due to their form.

Michael Keane also retains his place in the 25-man group, with Harry Kane making it in despite only being able to play for 73 minutes on his return to the Spurs side on Sunday.

Nathaniel Clyne comes back in after missing out last time due to injury, while Adam Lallana and Danny Drinkwater are others who have recovered from fitness issues to return.

England's 25-man squad to face Scotland and Spain: Forster (Southampton), Hart (Torino), Heaton (Burnley); Bertrand (Southampton), Cahill (Chelsea), Clyne (Liverpool), Jagielka (Everton), Keane (Burnley), Rose (Tottenham), Stones (Man City), Walker (Tottenham); Dier (Tottenham), Drinkwater (Leicester), Henderson (Liverpool), Wilshere (Bournemouth), Lallana (Liverpool), Lingard (Man Utd), Rooney (Man Utd), Sterling (Man City), Townsend (Crystal Palace); Walcott (Arsenal), Kane (Tottenham), Rashford (Man Utd), Sturridge (Liverpool), Vardy (Leicester).
