Callum Wilson has been given his first England call-up in Gareth Southgate’s latest 28-man squad, with Wayne Rooney’s send-off appearance confirmed.
Wilson is the only new face in the squad, given his first senior nod after impressing for Bournemouth this season.
The Cherries striker, who has six goals and five assists in 11 Premier League appearances, played once for England U21s – under Southgate in 2014.
He is joined in the squad by Rooney, who the FA have confirmed ‘will only feature in the USA game’.
England face the USA on November 15 in an international friendly, before hosting Croatia in a Nations League fixture three days later.
