Man Utd duo set to be recalled by Gareth Southgate for England fixtures

Manchester United stars Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho are set to be recalled by Gareth Southgate for England's next two fixtures.

The Three Lions are set to face Italy away before hosting Germany at Wembley Stadium in their final two Nations League matches later this month ahead of the World Cup in Qatar. Southgate will name his squad for those matches this week, the last time he will do so before naming his 26-man squad for the World Cup in two months' time.

According to the Daily Mail, both Rashford and Sancho are set to be included in the squad following their impressive starts to the new season.

Rashford has not been included in an England squad since the Euros, with his last appearance being a brief cameo off the bench in the final, which ended with him missing a penalty in the shootout.

Shoulder surgery and poor club form have since kept him out of the squad since, as the Three Lions completed qualifying for Qatar and started their Nations League campaign.

Three goals and two assists in six appearances so far this term, though, look set to earn him a recall to the national team after more than a year away.

The same can be said for Sancho, who has scored twice in seven matches this season and has impressed under new manager Erik ten Hag.

Unlike Rashford, though, he has featured since the Euros final, which also saw him miss a penalty after coming on in the closing stages.

Sancho was last included in October last year when he provided two assists in a dominant win over Andorra, but he has since been left out by Southgate.

The Three Lions go into their final two Nations League matches without a win in four after losing twice to Hungary and drawing with Germany and Italy back in June. Those results have left them bottom of Nations League group A3 after four of their six fixtures.

This week's squad announcement will be Southgate's last before he names a 55-man provisional list of players for the World Cup, ahead of submitting his 26-man squad by November 13.
