As we head into the International Break this week, it's time to turn our focus away from the domestic game and toward England's fortunes. The Three Lions have a difficult friendly fixture on Wednesday with the Old Enemy - Germany. That's followed by an honest to goodness World Cup 2018 qualifier against Lithuania at Wemberley on Sunday afternoon tea time.
Here is the squad that England caretaker boss Gareth Southgate has picked for those matches:
- Fraser Forster, Joe Hart, and Tom Heaton
- Ryan Bertrand, Gary Cahill, Nathaniel Clyne, Phil Jones, Michael Keane, Luke Shaw, Chris Smalling, John Stones and Kyle Walker
- Dele Alli, Michail Antonio, Ross Barkley, Eric Dier, Adam Lallana, Jesse Lingard, Jake Livermore, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Nathan Redmond, Raheem Sterling and James Ward-Prowse
- Jermain Defoe, Marcus Rashford and Jamie Vardy
Now, since this squad was announced on March 16, West Ham's Michail Antonio has pulled out of the squad through injury. Otherwise, though, these are the choices. So, you know what to do - pick your starting XI for Germany and Lithuania. I'll look forward to seeing your ideas.
