Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks has received an England call-up ahead of Jack Wilshere.
Despite Arsene Wenger insisting that Wilshere is more than ready to represent his country at an international level again, the 25-year-old has missed out on a call-up.
Instead, Harry Winks gets the nod.
Here’s the #ThreeLions squad for this month’s games against Germany and Brazil!

Gareth Southgate announced his England squad to face Germany (10 November) and Brazil (14 November) on Thursday afternoon.
Although the two fixtures are only friendlies, Wilshere will probably be gutted not to get called up.
Since returning from a second hairline fracture to his left fibular, the midfielder has impressed during his five appearances for the Gunners. The Englishman is looking as sharp as ever and if Wenger reckons he should be getting included in the Southgate’s squad, he probably should.
By the sounds of it, however, he just needs more game time.
On the other hand, Winks has also been strong for Spurs. The 21-year-old has only been capped once for his country but has made eight Premier League appearances for Mauricio Pochettino’s side this term.
The young midfielder, who’s been at Spurs his entire career, had a good game against Real Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday night. Arsenal’s north London rivals beat the La Liga giants 3-1.
