Southampton’s Nathan Redmond named in England squad for Nations League finals

Southampton’s Nathan Redmond is the surprise name in England manager Gareth Southgate‘s initial squad for the Nations League finals.
The Three Lions boss named a 27-man group ahead of this summer’s inaugural finals in Portugal, although he will need to cut the group down to 23 by May 27.
Unsurprisingly there are no uncapped players in Southgate’s selection, but there is a shock call-up for Redmond.
Overlooked since winning his one and only England cap in March 2017, the 25-year-old scooped the Player of the Year double at Saints’ end of year awards after a fine campaign.
England captain Harry Kane has been selected by Southgate despite an ankle ligament injury, while Harry Winks has also got the nod after groin surgery.
There is no place for Ruben Loftus-Cheek after sustaining a nasty-looking ankle injury playing in a friendly for Chelsea on Wednesday, while fellow midfielders Declan Rice and James Ward-Prowse are involved again.
Jesse Lingard and Joe Gomez return to the squad, while Luke Shaw and James Tarkowski are left out.
