Gareth Southgate explains why Gary Cahill has been dropped from England squad

Young's become a regular for Manchester United under Jose Mourinho

And now, according to the Times, Gareth Southgate will go through some final checks with Burnley regarding Tarkowski's fitness before handing him his first worldwide opportunity ahead of the World Cup; and it wouldn't be beyond the realms of possibility that he could then be called up for the competition in the summer.

Here's our -man squad for the #ThreeLions ' games against the Netherlands and Italy.

When quizzed on his defensive selections Southgate revealed: "Tarkowski and Mawson are players you want to look at for now and beyond the summer".

"Then there are people like [Eric] Dier who I'd like to see in a back three".

And while some politicians have called for a full boycott of the event, Southgate said he was simply concentrating on his job. It's great credit to Sean Dyche that we have got three Burnely players in our squad. They're the things we're focused on really.

"But Nick's form has warranted his place in the squad".

He said: 'Clearly the No.1 jersey is up for grabs.

"Joe [Hart] has had a hard period with his club and he had to miss out on selection a few times when David Moyes came in".

"Joe has had a hard period with his club and he had to miss out on selection a few times when David Moyes came in.

He's getting closer to where we want him", he said.

Meanwhile, Southgate had his say on the likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek who have missed out due to niggles.

Asked about Kane, who left the stadium on crutches after injuring his right ankle in Spurs' win over Bournemouth at the weekend, Southgate said: "I think the medical reports we have are that he will play well before the end of the season". It was a very hard call, he's a player I respect and has played a lot of qualifiers.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino confirmed that it was the same injury that had kept Kane out for seven weeks after an incident at Sunderland last season and another one at Millwall exactly a year ago that had ruled him out for four weeks.

Jack Wilshere has also earned an worldwide recall after working his way back from a broken leg.

"We have some of the best fans in the world so, in the end, that's got to be an individual choice as to which games they attend".
