Declan Rice has been named in the final 23-man England squad for the forthcoming Nations League semi finals.

England face the Netherlands next month in a bid to make the Final against either Portugal or Switzerland.

And Rice - who made his international debut for England as a second half substitute against the Czech Republic back in March - is one of the 23 named in Gareth Southgate's squad, that was reduced from an initial 27.

Speaking about his latest call-up a fortnight ago, when the 27-man squad was selected, Rice said: ""I am honoured to have been called up by England for a competition as important as the Nations League.

"I really enjoyed my first experience of being in and around an England squad and working with Gareth and his staff, so to have kept my place for these matches is really special.

"It has been far too long since England won a trophy so, although it won’t be easy against teams as good as Holland, Switzerland and Portugal, we’ll go out there and do our best and I think we’ve got a great chance of winning the tournament."

Gareth Southgate's final 23-man squad is as follows:

Jordan Pickford; Kyle Walker; Danny Rose; Eric Dier; John Stones; Harry Maguire; Jesse Lingard; Jordan Henderson; Harry Kane; Raheem Sterling; Jadon Sancho; Joe Gomez; Jack Butland; Ben Chilwell; Michael Keane; Declan Rice; Fabian Delph; Ross Barkley; Marcus Rashford; Dele Alli; Callum Wilson; Trent Alexander-Arnold; Tom Heaton.
