Jordan Henderson has been included in the England squad for the Nations League games against Italy and Germany.

The Football Association confirmed on Tuesday morning that the Liverpool captain has replaced Manchester City midfielder Calvin Phillips, who will undergo surgery on a shoulder problem.

Henderson has missed Liverpool’s last three games with a hamstring injury.

England face Italy in Milan on Friday, before welcoming Germany to Wembley next Monday.

The Germany game is the final game for Gareth Southgate’s men before England begin their World Cup campaign against Iran in November.

Henderson’s return to the team came after Southgate had finalized his squad when he handed Brentford striker Ivan Toney a first call-up.

Toney, 26, has scored five goals in seven appearances for Thomas Frank’s side this season, including a hat-trick against Leeds United earlier this month.

After a strong debut season with Brentford in the Premier League, his form has convinced Southgate that he deserves a chance to prove himself ahead of the World Cup in Qatar.

Elsewhere, Dean Henderson, Eric Dier and Ben Chilwell have been recalled. There was no such luck for Manchester United duo Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho, however, with Arsenal’s Ben White and Chelsea’s Conor Gallagher also missing.

Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw were included despite their poor starts to the season. The squad is set to meet next week to begin preparations for the next two Nations League games.

Explaining the thinking behind his selections, Southgate said: “This is a bigger than normal squad and part of the rationale is that we are very close to a World Cup and we feel, although our results were disappointing in the summer, we have selected based on form and ability over a long period of time.

“There were some players we wanted to keep in this time but that doesn’t mean it’s the end for some of the others who aren’t. Marcus Rashford, for example, has shown some encouraging signs recently. He’s a player who we know well, so if he can play at a high level in the next few weeks, of course he will be under consideration.”

Who will England play next?

The national team face Italy at the San Siro, followed by a home match against Germany at Wembley.

When are the games?

The match between Italy and England will be held on Friday, September 23 and will start at 19:45. The game against Germany is on Monday 26 September, also at 19.45.
