Kobbie Mainoo: Man Utd midfielder selected for England friendlies


For the upcoming friendlies against Brazil and Belgium, Kobbie Mainoo of Manchester United has been called up to the England squad for the first time.

Following his promotion to Gareth Southgate's senior team, Mainoo, 18, was first named in the under-21 squad.

Before Southgate announces his Euro 2024 selection, England's final two matches are against Brazil on Saturday and Belgium on March 26 at Wembley.

Tuesday saw the arrival of the remaining members of the 26-man team at St George's Park.

Mainoo is an England under-17, under-18, and under-19 cap winner who graduated from the United Academy.

Following his debut against Everton in November, the teenager from Stockport made 19 more appearances for Manchester United.

His first goal for the team came at the end of January in an FA Cup fourth-round victory against Newport. Four days later, he scored a late Premier League win against Wolves.

Several players who had received their first senior call-ups arrived at St George's Park, including Anthony Gordon of Newcastle and Jarrad Branthwaite of Everton.

After serving an eight-month sentence for breaking Football Association (FA) betting regulations in January, Brentford striker Ivan Toney is making his debut.
