London - Swansea City striker Tammy Abraham was one of three uncapped players named in a youthful England squad on Thursday for their forthcoming friendly matches against Germany and Brazil.

Abraham, who is on loan at Swansea, received his first call-up along with his Chelsea club-mate Ruben Loftus-Cheek, currently on loan at Crystal Palace, and Liverpool defender Joe Gomez.

Abraham, 20, has scored five goals in 13 games for Swansea this season.

Loftus-Cheek, 21, has played seven games for Palace, while 20-year-old Gomez has become Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp's first-choice pick at right-back for Premier League games.

Gareth Southgate's side begin their preparations for next year's World Cup against world champions Germany at Wembley on November 10 before facing off against Brazil at the same venue four days later.

Manchester United auxiliary man Ashley Young has earned a recall, over four years after his last cap, while Tottenham Hotspur left-back Danny Rose made his return following a spell on the sidelines with a knee injury.

Tottenham midfielder Harry Winks kept his place in the squad after impressing on his debut in last month's 1-0 win away to Lithuania in World Cup qualifying.

But there was no room for Manchester United centre-back Chris Smalling, Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere or the Liverpool pair of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Daniel Sturridge.
