Thoughts on the Gareth Southgate's latest 25-man England squad? Are you surprised by any of his selections?
Here's how social media reacted to the news.
Extremely happy with the squad. Strongly disagree with Lingard but that's about it. People saying drop Mings need to think about his replacements, are Dunk and Tarkowski really better than him? I don't think so. #England #ThreeLions https://t.co/hQqubFJeoD- Kieran Jones (@KieranJones06) August 29, 2019
