England boss Gareth Southgate has recalled Jesse Lingard, Luke Shaw and John Stones to his squad for 2022 World Cup qualifiers later this month.

Aston Villa striker Ollie Watkins and West Brom keeper Sam Johnstone have also been called up for the first time.

Liverpool defender Trent Alexander-Arnold has not been included in the 26-man squad.

England play San Marino at home on 25 March, are away in Albania on 28 March and then host Poland on 31 March.

Midfielder Lingard, who is on loan at West Ham from Manchester United, last played for the national team in June 2019.

Manchester City centre-back Stones has not played for England since November 2019, while Manchester United left-back Shaw's last game for the side was in September 2018.

Borussia Dortmund's 17-year-old midfielder Jude Bellingham is in the squad but could miss out because of coronavirus restrictions in Germany.

"We are still investigating what is possible and we wanted to name him in the squad," said Southgate.

Bellingham's club team-mate Jadon Sancho misses out with injury, along with midfielders Jordan Henderson and Jack Grealish.

On Shaw's recall, Southgate said: "We often talk about coaches' and managers' impact on players but we have to give players a lot of credit.

"In Luke's case he has been defending on the front foot. He's been aggressive in his defending and shows great ambition in his attacking play. We know he has the quality to do that.

"He has earned his chance and deserves to be in."

14:14Luke Shaw deserves it, and I say that as a Man City fan, as does Stones. Also pleased to see Watkins and Johnstone called up. Good decisions picking players in form, not just names.464R

14:16Why even have the international break during an ongoing global pandemic. Literally asking for tons of Covid – 19 cases at all clubs. If I was a club manager, I wouldn’t let my players go!284S

If they don’t play them now then they will have to insert another International break so the qualifiers can be played because they ain’t going to move the world Cup itself.203

14:27People: Always the same players, picked on reputation.
Lingard gets picked after playing brilliantly for 3 months.
Also people: Why the hell is Lingard picked, just because he’s playing well? He hasn’t got a reputation.

This is why we can’t have nice things.130D

14:20Vastly injury hit squad Pickford, Henderson, Grealish, Maddison ,Sancho, Barnes would all have been certs for the squad on form this season but all are injured.
So it’s hard to say alot really other than the obvious surprised no Alexander Arnold & Bamford. Could throw in likes of Harrison from Leeds , Cresswell from W Ham & Target from Villa on form this season aswell.90B

14:14John Stones and Luke Shaw 100% deserve a recall. Lingard on the other hand is a strange choice. Yes, he’s had a decent start at West Ham but that’s 6 games and he’s barely played for the last year before that.
I’d hope he wouldn’t be in the squad if Grealish or Maddison were fit but even when them out I don’t even think he’s a better option than Alli or Barkley.1510N
