Heaton In England Squad But Injured Keane Out

25 May 2017

Tom Heaton has been included in England’s squad for their two fixtures in June.

But Burnley team-mate Michael Keane has been ruled out with injury.

Heaton is named by England manager Gareth Southgate in a 25-man party for a World Cup qualifier against Scotland at Hampden Park on Saturday, 10 June and a friendly against France at the Stade de France in Paris on Tuesday, 13 June.

Michael Keane made his England debut against Germany in March

The Clarets’ goalkeeper, 31, will be looking to challenge for a third England cap after an outstanding season in the Premier League for Sean Dyche’s side.

Meanwhile, Keane misses out due to the calf injury that ruled him out of the Clarets’ last three games of the Premier League season.

However, the 24-year-old defender, who won his first two senior caps earlier this season, will report to St George’s Park for one day during the build-up to the double header.

Former Burnley defender Kieran Trippier is named in a senior squad for the first time.

England squad: 
Jack Butland (Stoke), Fraser Forster (Southampton), Joe Hart (Torino, on loan from Man City), Tom Heaton (Burnley); 
Ryan Bertrand (Southampton), Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Nathaniel Clyne (Liverpool), Aaron Cresswell (West Ham), Ben Gibson (Middlesbrough), Phil Jones (Man Utd), Chris Smalling (Man Utd), John Stones (Man City), Kieran Trippier (Tottenham), Kyle Walker (Tottenham);
Dele Alli (Tottenham), Eric Dier (Tottenham), Adam Lallana (Liverpool), Jesse Lingard (Man Utd), Jake Livermore (West Brom), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal), Raheem Sterling (Man City);
Jermain Defoe (Sunderland), Harry Kane (Tottenham), Marcus Rashford (Man Utd), Jamie Vardy (Leicester).
