Swansea's Alfie Mawson also earns a place in Southgate's squad for the first time, but there is no place for Chelsea captain Gary Cahill as he paid for a lack of game time in recent weeks.

Arsenal midfielder Wilshere hasn't played at international level since England crashed out to Iceland at Euro 2016.
