England national team confirmed for Euro 2024 qualifiers vs Italy and Ukraine

Gareth Southgate has named a 25-man list for the England national team that will face Italy and Ukraine. Ben White, Raheem Sterling and Trent Alexander-Arnold have been left out of the squad while Ivan Toney gets his second call-up. Harry Maguire and Kalvin Phillips have retained their places in the team. 

Toney’s call-up comes at a time when he is being charged with 262 breaches of the FA’s betting rules. However, he has pleaded innocent to several of them.

Southgate was asked about Ivan Toney’s England national team call-up amidst the charges. And here is what he had to say about the matter: 

“The fact is that Ivan is available for his club. There hasn’t been a trial or any judgement as yet so I don’t know on what basis we wouldn’t pick him.

“He’s playing really well. I like his presence in games and he deserves his opportunity.”
