City quartet named in England squad for March friendlies

Four Manchester City players have been named in the England squad for the upcoming friendlies against Switzerland and the Ivory Coast.

Phil Foden, Jack Grealish, Raheem Sterling and John Stones are all included in the 25-man group selected by manager Gareth Southgate, as the Three Lions continue their build-up to the 2022 World Cup finals.

Having booked their place at this winter’s showpiece tournament in Qatar last November, the national side are back in action for the first time in 2022.

England play host to Switzerland at Wembley Stadium on Saturday 26 March, with the kick-off set for 5.30pm. Southgate’s squad then take on Ivory Coast, again at Wembley, on Tuesday, 29 March, kick-off 7.45pm.


The City quartet will join up with the Three Lions following Sunday’s FA Cup quarter-final against Southampton, returning to the City Football Academy ahead of our Premier League fixture against Burnley on Saturday, 2 April.
