Former England manager Sven Goran Eriksson has explained the difficulty Gareth Southgate will face picking Manchester United duo Harry Maguire and Luke Shaw for the Three Lions.

Both Maguire and Shaw have been called up for the recent England squad to face Italy and Germany in the Nations League. This will be the last time Southgate can assess his options before the winter World Cup in Qatar, which starts in November.

The United defenders have found game time hard to come by at Old Trafford this season. Maguire has been dropped to the bench in favour of Raphael Varane and Lisandro Martinez while injury and the form of Tyrell Malacia has kept Shaw out of the starting line-up.

"It's one thing to train, but it's another to have a regular routine of games.
