Gareth Southgate Will Name England Squad This Thursday

Three Lions boss Gareth Southgate will name his 25-man England squad this Thursday, 24 August 2017 ahead of the international games against Malta and Slovakia.

Gareth's squad will then report to St. George's Park following this weekend's club fixtures.


It happens every year - the Premier League and Championship fixtures get binned just as they begin to gain a bit of momentum. But hey, I should be used to it now, right? Erm, let me think. Nope, my comment remains intact. FIFA and UEFA international qualifiers and friendlies should take place ether before domestic leagues begin, or at the end of the respective campaigns.

England fixtures

Friday 1 September 2017
European World Cup Qualifier

Kick off 7:45pm

Monday 4 September
European World Cup Qualifier

As it stands England sit on top of Group F with a two-point lead over second-placed Slovakia. If the lads win both qualifiers then FIFA World Cup 2018 in Russia here we come.
