Jose Mourinho delighted for Luke Shaw after Manchester United defender's England call-up

The 23-year-old was subjected to stinging criticism from Jose Mourinho last season as the United manager questioned his approach to training and commitment to the club.

Lallana and Gomez missed this summer's World Cup but, with both now fully fit again, Gareth Southgate has selected them in his first squad since the tournament. In the other change from the squad which reached the World Cup semi-finals, Southampton's Alex McCarthy replaces injured third-choice keeper Nick Pope.

James Tarkowski of Burnley is in the fold, taking the place of retired Gary Cahill.

Southampton goalkeeper Alex McCarthy has also earned a first call-up with Joe Gomez and James Tarkowski returning for the UEFA Nations League game at Wembley against Spain on September 8 and friendly in Leicester with Switzerland three days later.

"We're obviously coming off the back of a successful summer, so I think there's a good foundation for us to build on", said Southgate, explaining why there were no radical changes despite reports that teenagers such as Phil Foden and Jadon Sancho could make the cut.

"I want us to try to capture what we had this summer", said Southgate.

The iPhone maker reported $2.34 earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, beating the Zacks' consensus estimate of $2.18 by $0.16. However the most payment-efficient model will seemingly be elevated than the mid-range model, potentially complicated customers.

"He played three very good matches and it is not easy to play three very good matches when your team loses them", said Mourinho. "People are going to have to play at a good level to retain their places".

"I was particularly pleased, I was telling him, 'You can not play better than you did".

The 31-year-old believes the time is right for younger players to be given an extended opportunity, although he could still add to his 26 caps in the event of an injury crisis.

England have undergone several reviews of the state of the game following World Cup disappointments and while Southgate is clearly pleased there is no need for a structural overhaul this time, he feels that the danger of young players not getting playing time needs to be looked at.

The defender has even taken team-mate Ashley Young's place in the England squad, earning a recall after more than a year away from global action.

"We wanted some continuity (but) we won't stand still".
