Gareth Southgate will hand two debutants their first England cap this evening.

England return to action tonight as they host Switzerland in a friendly at Wembley Stadium.

A host of fresh faces awaiting their first international cap have been called up to the Three Lions squad and it has been confirmed that two debutants will make an appearance this evening.

Southampton right-back, Kyle Walker-Peters, and Crystal Palace centre-back, Marc Guehi, will make up two of England’s backline as they take on Switzerland.

Guehi was included in the Three Lions’ original squad, while KWP was handed his call-up following the withdrawal of Reece James and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

The pair have shone for their respective teams this season and will look to force their way into Gareth Southgate’s World Cup plans after impressing him in the Premier League.

We are yet to see whether Manchester United defender Harry Maguire will retain his place in the line-up after enduring a difficult campaign as the Red Devils’ captain, with his place in the 25-man squad coming under a lot of criticism.

Following tonight’s friendly at Wembley, the Three Lions will then take on Ivory Coast in the English capital once again on Tuesday night.
