Gareth Southgate adds another two uncapped outfield players to England squad

Lewis Cook and Dominic Solanke have been added to the England squad to face Brazil on Tuesday

Gareth Southgate is dishing out England caps for fun.

Last night he gave Joe Gomez, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Jack Cork and Tammy Abraham international debuts, in the 0-0 draw with Germany.

Then he woke up and decided to give Norwich goalkeeper Angus Gunn a call to replace Jack Butland.

Now he’s added Bournemouth midfielder Lewis Cook and Liverpool striker Dominic Solanke to the England squad preparing to face Brazil at Wembley on Tuesday, according to The Telegraph.


At least Gareth Southgate is fulfilling his promise to give young players a chance at senior level.

Both Cook and Solanke were part of England Under-20’s World Cup triumph in the summer.

Cook captained the side and has played six times for Bournemouth this season, with four of those appearances coming in the Premier League.

The 20-year-old has previously played for the Under-16s through to the Under-21s.

Solanke made the switch from Chelsea to Liverpool after the World Cup triumph but has found first-team opportunities hard to come by.

He’s yet to start a Premier League game for his new club but did score for England Under-21s in the 2-0 win against Ukraine last night.

The 20-year-old could find himself in the strange position of having started more games for England than he has league games for Liverpool this season.

But we’re all for Southgate’s youth-driven policy. The future’s bright, the future’s England.
