It is fair to say that there were a number of talking points when Gareth Southgate named his England squad last week.

They are the last games that England play before Southgate names his World Cup squad and the threat of relegation to League B hangs over the team if they lose to Italy on Friday night.



BBC Sport has taken a look at the data that backs up Southgate's decisions.



The Nations League matches against Italy and Germany, while big games in their own right, carry an extra importance.



The England squad is blessed with an abundance of talented right-backs, which comes with its own issues, but there is not much depth at left-back.

In other positive news for England, Kane has scored six Premier League goals so far which is his joint best start after seven games.

Although Maguire's stats aren't impressive when looking at his club form it is a different story for his country, which shows why Southgate calls him "one of our best centre-backs".
