England manager Gareth Southgate plays down significance of Nations League glory

       Gareth Southgate and his staff will begin their preparations for the Nations League on Monday

Southgate admitted he was unsure over Kane's fitness, not just for the Nations League but the Champions League final, saying: "That's one of the unknowns". We are keeping that door open.

Southgate, who named his initial squad for the finals yesterday, is on the hunt for silverware next month when the Three Lions face Holland in the semi finals. There is the physical aspect and emotional aspect of that final that we have to look at. Although we have had to play a few matches without him across the two years, I think he has started 14 of our last 21 or 22, so there are lots of times we have had to get results without him as well.

"We will know more by that date [27 May] but we can make changes after that date".

Midfielders Ross Barkley, Dele Alli, Fabian Delph, Eric Dier, Jordan Henderson, Declan Rice, James Ward-Prowse, Harry Winks.

Southgate plans to leave the England camp to attend the contest between Liverpool and Tottenham that could involve nine of the players he named in an extended 27-man squad on Thursday, giving him the opportunity to make a personal assessment of the players he then hopes can end that 53-year wait for a second worldwide senior trophy.

Jesse Lingard also makes the cut despite withdrawing from the last squad with injury, only to then turn out the following weekend for Manchester United. Ben Chilwell and Danny Rose are Southgate's left backs because they have been "committed to the England shirt over the last period of time".

The baby, however, was not Ochoa-Uriostegui's. "They (Ochoa-Lopez's family) should be celebrating the birth of a young baby". But Ochoa-Lopez's family said they notified authorities about her interaction with the woman much sooner.

The 25-year-old winger was last capped in March 2017.

Speaking at a press conference, the England manager said: "I think he finished the season really well".

The England manager also added that Chelsea pair Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Callum Hudson-Odoi would have been selected if they were fit.

Having topped a Nations League group which included Spain and World Cup runners-up Croatia, England are set to face the Netherlands in the semi-finals on 6 June.

"We're really looking forward to the opportunity to finish the summer off, once everything's done", he said.
