“There were definitely some players we wanted to see,” Southgate said on englandfootball.com. “We were in a similar situation before EURO 2020 where buying some time could help us make better decisions and might help us pick a more balanced squad.

“There are some injury issues that are very obvious and others where we don’t have all the information. Sometimes you need to work with the players and see how they react physically to training.

“This has been as complicated a group as I can remember picking. I think we can make better decision by giving ourselves more time.”
