“[Harry Maguire, Luke Shaw, and Anthony Gordon] are progressing well so we’re pleased with the progress they’ve made,” Southgate told a press conference.

“None of them will be involved (against Bosnia and Herzegovina). Same for Bukayo [Saka] and John Stones

“Bukayo is fine, and is progressing well, but the periodisation we’ve taken from his injury is to rest and then he should be available for Friday.”
