Fresh from signing a contract extension to 2022, England manager Gareth Southgate has named a young squad squad for October's internationals against Croatia and Spain.

Sancho has made a stunning start to the new season with Borussia Dortmund and is now the leading assist maker in Europe's top five leagues with eight assists, despite having just started two games in all competitions. He's had two starts in the Champions League this year, he's a player that is explosive, is really creative in the final third, has had a big impact in terms of assists in the matches that he's played, can score goals.

Southgate has handed first senior debut call-ups to Mason Mount, Jadon Sancho and most notably James Maddison who has been in phenomenal form for Leicester City so far this campaign.

He has three goals and two assists for Leicester since a £20m summer move from Norwich.

They are not the only debutants, with midfielder Mason Mount also called up.

Scotland global and Fulham midfielder Tom Cairney has also been linked with a switch to England, but manager Alex McLeish said there is "nothing sinister" in his absence from the squad named this week. These calls however are likely to be resisted by Southgate for now, in favour of letting Sancho improve with Aidy Boothroyd's Under-21 side first.

Gareth Southgate has verbally agreed a new contract which will see him remain as England manager until after the 2022 World Cup, Sky Sports News has learned.

Southgate's side then travel to Seville to take on Spain, who won 2-1 at Wembley in England's first Nations League match last month.

Maddison has created more goalscoring chances than any other English player in the Premier League this season. He has been courageous enough to go and play overseas and has started two Champions League games for Dortmund and has also had a big impact from the bench in their league games. We think there are some exciting young players that we've been tracking, either through their clubs or our junior teams ...

Mason's situation is slightly different.

A total of three Liverpool players have been picked - Trent Alexander-Arnold, Joe Gomez and Jordan Henderson - while Tottenham have a total of five players in the squad; Danny Rose, Kieran Trippier, Eric Dier, Harry Winks and Harry Kane.
