The England national team has finalized its squad for the upcoming friendly matches against Brazil and Belgium.

This time, the head coach of the England team has called up two debutants: Everton's central defender, Jarrad Brantwhaite and Newcastle's winger, Anthony Gordon.

For the first time in a long while, central midfielder Kalvin Phillips, who plays for West Ham on loan from Manchester City, did not receive a call-up. Despite having minimal playing time under Guardiola's leadership, he was consistently called up to the national team.

It is also worth noting the inclusion of Brentford forward Ivan Toney, who missed the first half of the season due to suspension.

The complete squad looks as follows:

England will face Brazil on March 23, and three days later, they will play against Belgium. Both matches will take place at the legendary Wembley Stadium.

It is worth mentioning that today, the Germany national team also announced its squad, with the return of Toni Kroos.
