Jordan Henderson, Jordan Pickford and Danny Rose have all been selected in Gareth Southgate’s 27-man squad ahead of the UEFA Nations League finals next month.

Southgate previously selected all three players for the World Cup in Russia last summer, along with another former Black Cat Danny Welbeck who missed the call up this time round.

Henderson played for Sunderland from the academy up until 2011 and he made his Three Lions debut while still at Sunderland in 2010.

Pickford had a short but sweet stint as the club’s number one in their last season in the Premier League – but despite performing admirably he couldn’t keep the side up and moved on in 2017 following Sunderland’s relegation.

Rose joined Sunderland on loan for the 2011/12 season from Tottenham Hotspur and did well during his season cementing himself as number one during his time with the club.

The England manager will need to shorten the squad down to 23 players by 27 May.

Tottenham’s Harry Winks and Southampton’s Nathan Redmond are the surprise editions in the Three Lions squad.

Captain Harry Kane has been selected despite not playing since suffering an ankle injury.

With Liverpool and Tottenham playing in the Champions League final and Chelsea and Arsenal playing in the Europa League final, Southgate will most likely be keeping an eye on Henderson and Rose and their injuries during these games.

England play the Netherlands on the 6 June at the Estadio D. Afonso Henriques over in Portugal.
