Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy will answer England’s call again this week, after being included in Roy Hodgson’s latest Three Lions squad.

Further afield, Shinji Okazaki’s Japan host Cambodia in Tokyo (3 September) before travelling to Iran to play Afghanistan (8 September), while Jeffrey Schlupp’s Ghana take on Congo (1 September) and Rwanda (5 September).
Riyad Mahrez’s Algeria are due to face Lesotho on Sunday 6 September. Of City’s young professionals, Oldham Athletic loanee Simonas Stankevicius leads the way after being named in the senior Lithuania squad for games against Slovenia (4 September) and Serbia (8 September).
Ben Chilwell has been named in the England Under-20 squad for a double-header against the Czech Republic, while Brandon Fox and Elliott Moore are both in contention for the England Under-19 squad, who take on Germany (4 September) and Croatia (7 September).
