Manchester United superstars Jesse Lingard and Aaron Wan-Bissaka have both failed to make the England national team call-up this time including Liverpool midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

And in their omission, head coach Gareth Southgate brought in new additions like Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori and striker Tammy Abraham to the Three Lions’ team, which is also their first ever call-up to the senior team.

The Southgate’s squad will be taking a flight to Prague to take on Czech Republic on October 11 before playing against Bulgaria three days after which is classified as bet of the day.

Chelsea academy graduates, Abraham and Tomori, are the latest new players to be included in the Southgate’s team and Everton midfielder Fabian Delph makes a return to the team.

Tomori, who has seemingly rise through the Chelsea academy having joined as an under 8 player back in 2005, has quickly become his club’s solid rock at the back since the beginning of the season starting four Premier League games already. And his impressive defensive skills have seen him earn a call-up for his country.

While Abraham, on the other hand, wasted no time in establishing himself in the Frank Lampard team scoring his 8th goal for the club in 10 games in team’s 2-1 victory against Lille in the Champions League on Wednesday. With the help of the right football predictions you could have expected this to happen.

He has formerly featured to the Three Lions squad in friendly matches against Germany and Brazil, but as an unused substitute back in 2017, he is also reported to be eligible to play for Nigeria unless plays a competitive match for England in the upcoming games.

Another high-profile player to have completely missed the call-up to Gareth Southgate’s team is Manchester City right-back Kyle Walker, having preferred Tottenham’s Kieran Trippier and Liverpool Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Southgate is expecting Jesse Lingard and Aaron Wan-Bissaka to fight back for their spot in the team following the difficult season they are both having.
