England call-up for Man City midfielder Fabian Delph

We run the risk of being a shambles because he might have to be withdrawn.

Manchester City midfielder Fabian Delph was the standout name in the 26-man squad, having won the last of his nine caps against Spain in November 2015. "Our hope, obviously, is that common sense prevails and that he is available for our matches, but we have to wait and see on that".

We've had a good chat with Dele about lots of different things and the biggest disappointment for him is that he has to miss football. He recognises the responsibility and we still have to qualify.

Delph, who has struggled for game time at City because of injuries and fierce competition for places, has played out of position at left back for Manchester City in recent games and may continue in that role following an injury to Benjamin Mendy. "We hope to have him available".

On Tottenham striker Harry Kane, he added: "It is great we talk about Harry Kane under the company of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo".

"I don't know a better finisher at the moment".

Southgate omitted a number of injured players, including Jamie Vardy, while the likes of Theo Walcott and Luke Shaw, among others, have not convinced the coach of a recall following their unimpressive start to the new campaign. Some do not have the commitment with their lifestyle, but he does.

Fellow striker Jamie Vardy was not included in the squad as he recovers from a hip injury and Southgate said that the 30-year-old had been playing through pain and would benefit from a rest during the two-week global break.

England require just two points from their matches against Slovenia and Lithuania to qualify for next year's World Cup finals in Russian Federation.
