"I think of the 14 games I've had, he's only be available for six and, within those six, he's scored seven goals so that's an indication of his importance and standing for us".

He will miss England's game in Holland on March 23 and the visit of Italy on March 27 and Southgate knows, despite being confident over Kane's fitness, he needs a contingency plan in Russian Federation.

Prime Minister Theresa May has told politicians and royals not to attend this summer's showpiece. "I want him to stay and be linked to the club for the future and I hope he will do it", said Wenger.

As mentioned earlier, the statement of the English national football squad's manager comes a few weeks after the revelations of the former England's midfielder Kieron Dyer about spreading gambling addiction in the national team shocked the community.

Lewis Cook, Bournemouth's one-time Leeds United midfielder, is also named in the squad again and may make his senior debut in either Friday's friendly in Amsterdam or the following Tuesday's clash with Italy at Wembley. "Harry Kane is one of those, Phil Jones is one, as are Fabian Delph and Ruben (Loftus-Cheek)".

The latest England squad was released this afternoon, with Gareth Southgate opting to include a raft of new faces - but plenty of Three Lions fans are clueless as to why Newcastle's Jamaal Lascelles hasn't been called-up.

Mr Ri's visit to Stockholm, where he once served as a diplomat at the North Korean embassy, has been shrouded in secrecy. Trump accepted an invitation from Kim when a South Korean delegation delivered it verbally in Washington.

There was no place in the 27-man squad for defenders Chris Smalling, Michael Keane or Gary Cahill.

Kane has been ruled out for England's friendlies later this month against the Netherlands and Italy due to an ankle ligament injury. "We are desperate to go to a World Cup and that's where my remit ends on that matter".

"We always take a chef away with us and part of his responsibility is to source the produce", he said.

"Not just the England manager, but the Arsenal manager made it clear what he wanted from me". Who do we need to learn more about to be able to replace some of the first-choice players?

Southgate said on Wilshere: "Jack's a player that has unquestionable talent".

"Players are developing quickly and we have some good young players who are coming through, youngsters developing at rate of knots". "It is important whenever there is speculation and uncertainty that you put it into context for everybody".
