City quintet named in England squad

Five Manchester City players have been named in the England squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Albania and San Marino.

Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, Raheem Sterling, John Stones and Kyle Walker are all included in the 25-man group selected by Gareth Southgate, as the Three Lions look to book their place at Qatar 2022.


Unbeaten England sit top of Group I after eight games and need four points from their remaining two fixtures to guarantee their spot at next winter’s tournament.

They host Albania at Wembley Stadium on Friday 12 November, before travelling to San Marino to complete their qualifying campaign three days later.

All five City players are retained from the previous round of international fixtures, when Grealish netted his first England goal in a 5-0 victory over Andorra, with Stones also on target in a 1-1 draw with Hungary.

They will join up with the Three Lions following Saturday’s game against Manchester United, returning to the City Football Academy ahead of our Premier League fixture against Everton on Sunday 21 November.
