Wilshere recalled by England after two years in worldwide wilderness

Kane heads long list of World Cup worries for England

"I think it's a matter that's completely out of our control". And the only thing at this stage that is of highest importance is the safety and security of our players and absolutely of our travelling supporters.

"I would never pressure any individual to make a decision".

Southgate added: "We will be talking to all our players about what might get them into disciplinary trouble during the tournament, whether that's how they approach referees, committing fouls in our areas of the pitch, we have to avoid giving free kicks away".

The Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has also been called up and so has Joe Hart, despite the goalkeeper's lack of minutes at West Ham.

He admitted in January, as talk of a possible recall surfaced for the first time, that it was his intention to push for a place in Southgate's 2018 World Cup plans. I said that before.

Uncapped quartet James Tarkowski and Nick Pope of Burnley, Swansea defender Alfie Mawson and Bournemouth's Lewis Cook have all been included.

England's manager accepted he named an experimental 27-man group for friendlies against Holland and Italy.

"It wasn't so much on the senior radar because I'm always conscious of what would that have meant for Harry Winks, for Lewis Cook, for Nathaniel Chalobah, who have been in our system all the way through".

Southgate omitted center backs Gary Cahill, Chris Smalling and Michael Keane.

"The key for me is that he is playing in the games that matter for Arsenal", Southgate told a news conference.

Kane has been ruled out for England's friendlies later this month against the Netherlands and Italy due to an ankle ligament injury.

Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer has expressed his surprise that two of the club's current crop failed to make Gareth Southgate's freshly announced England squad.

"It is part of our World Cup bingo that we have got going on", he said with a smile.

"I have had Harry available for six out of 14 games so far, so we always need a 'what-if?' scenario planning in our minds".

"That's still a process that is ongoing and now that issue has been flagged, he's somebody we'll monitor more closely".

"Whenever there is speculation and uncertainty, it's important that you put it into context for everybody".
