Men's Team

City quartet receive England call-up

Jack Grealish, Raheem Sterling, John Stones and Kyle Walker have been named in the England squad for next month’s World Cup qualifiers against Hungary, Andorra and Poland.

The Manchester City quartet are among the 25 players called up by Gareth Southgate as the Three Lions resume their qualifying campaign for next year’s tournament in Qatar.

All four players have kept their place following their impressive displays at EURO 2020, though Phil Foden misses out with the injury that has kept him out since the semi-final victory over Denmark.

Grealish and Sterling go into the latest international break having got off the mark for the season with their goals against Norwich last weekend, whilst Stones needs just one cap to reach a landmark 50th appearance for his country.

City’s players will depart after Saturday’s game against Arsenal and face three games in seven days.

England, who currently sit top of Group I with a 100% record from the opening three fixtures, travel to Budapest to play Hungary on Thursday 2 September, before returning home to face Andorra at Wembley Stadium three days later.

They conclude with an away trip to Poland on Wednesday 8 September.

Joao Cancelo, Ruben Dias and Bernardo Silva were all called up by Portugal on Thursday for qualifying games against Ireland and Azerbaijan, which fall either side of a friendly with Qatar.
