Just months since that Euros Final defeat, Gareth Southgate names new additions in the England squad for the upcoming World Cup Qualifiers.
Three Lions supporters will be able to see the men’s (senior) team back at Wembley Stadium next month.
Southgate’s men will face Andorra on Sunday the 5th of September, with another two FIFA World Cup qualifiers away to Hungary and Poland either side.
The men’s senior squad was named at 2pm on Thursday the 26th of August, with the U21, U20, U19 and U18 squads being revealed the following day.
For the U21, the trip to Romania on Friday the 3rd of September will be Carsley’s first game in charge, following his promotion from the U20s, and he will be joined in the dugout by his assistant and England legend Ashley Cole.
Carsley and the 107-cap former Chelsea star will then have the chance to lead out MU21s in front of home fans at League One club Milton Keynes Dons’ Stadium MK four days later, with tickets for the UEFA U21 EURO qualifier on Tuesday the 7th of September already on sale.

Leeds United player Kalvin Phillips has set his sights on lifting the World Cup in 2022 after helping England reach the Euro 2020 final this summer.
If he hadn’t already, the 25-year-old won a lot of people’s attention across Europe with a string of all-action displays in the centre of midfield yet had one season of Premier League experience under his belt.
If he continues to impress with the Whites, a place in Gareth Southgate’s squad for the tournament in Qatar will be all but guaranteed and the ambition of the boyhood Leeds supporter can’t be doubted.
He has revealed what Southgate said to the players after the conclusion of the tournament before outlining his targets for England’s next major international tournament.
He told PA: “He told us just to stay fit, stay healthy and we can look forward to a very exciting World Cup, which I believe it will be.
“Hopefully, and I don’t want to say too much, but we’ve got a very good, young squad and I’m very happy to be a part of that.
“We’ll see how far we can get and hopefully go one step further next time.”
Phillips admitted he was surprised at being picked for the Euros selection, adding: “It was a massive surprise. I knew I’d done well in the games before the Euros, but I didn’t really know if I was going to play or not, I was just happy to be there.
“Then once you get the first taste you just want to keep playing more and more and the manager showed a lot of faith in me, even changing my position, so I’m grateful for that and very happy he did to be fair.”
“Last season was obviously so good for me and the (Leeds) team. Finishing ninth in the Premier League shows how well we did and that gave me the chance to play for England.
“I got the nod from Gareth Southgate and I’m very grateful for that. Hopefully I can keep getting into the squad.”
FAN REACTION TO THE LATEST ENGLAND TEAM:
@BenPars22: Doesn’t pick players on form Greenwood should be there
@jparkes1991: For the love of god can we sack off this international break? Far too close to the euros and the start of the season.
@SamWebo: Greenwood robbed lol
@SKoczalski: No Greenwood?? But has chosen Lingard
@SAOVOi6: What does Greenwood have to do to get in? He’s literally scoring every game
@StokeyyG2: Greenwood scored 2 in 2 yet he’s still dropped, not sure about that one
@rianmbfc: No Greenwood, absolute disgrace
Konsa > Coady/Mings
JWP > Lingard
Greenwood > Saka
Antonio and Ings > Bamford
@Oliveresuana: Good. Keep him away from Greenwood.
@jonr1875: Glad to see Bamford in this. Deserved
@mattblade16: Wtf is Bamford doing in the squad
@StemboatSociety: Guess that 20 odd minute Sancho cameo was enough to convince Southgate that he should be in over Greenwood.
@JAlexMurphy: Ramsdale joins, instantly dropped. The Arsenal way
4 right backs
1 left back
Lingard over greenwood
International football is back 😭😭😭😭
@katiemb95: No Greenwood, absolute jokes. Take him over Bamford.
