FRASER Forster has won a recall to the England senior squad.

The Saints goalkeeper was left out of Gareth Southgate's squad last month, even though the manager named four shot-stoppers.

Wiith Burnley's Tom Heaton currently injured, Forster has returned to the squad Southgate has named for forthcoming World Cup qualifiers against Slovenia at Wembley next Thursday and a trip to the Baltics to face Lithuania.

Dele Alli has been named in the squad despite the threat of a FIFA ban hanging overhead, while Fabian Delph has been called up by Gareth Southgate for the first time.

Alli has been included in England's squad for the final Group F matches, despite the fact his middle-finger gesture in the qualifier against Slovakia could lead FIFA to hand out a ban ruling the attacking midfielder out of both games.

The Football Association had been hoping to find out about his availability before today's squad announcement but, as had always been intended, the 21-year-old has been called up despite his position being unclear.

FIFA said earlier this week it would make a decision on Alli by Thursday, but warned "disciplinary decisions are usually notified and communicated a few days after the hearing".

Manchester City midfielder Delph was the standout name in the 26-man squad, having won the last of his nine caps against Spain in November 2015.

Nathaniel Chalobah, Danny Welbeck and Heaton - members of the last squad - miss out through injury, while Leicester's Jamie Vardy, who has been managing a hip injury, was left out.

Forster joined Delph as the only changes to the squad, with Everton's Michael Keane has been included despite concerns over a foot complaint Squad: Joe Hart (West Ham, on loan from Manchester City), Fraser Forster (Southampton), Jack Butland (Stoke), Jordan Pickford (Everton); Ryan Bertrand (Southampton), Aaron Cresswell (West Ham), Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Phil Jones (Manchester United), Harry Maguire (Leicester), John Stones (Manchester City), Michael Keane (Everton), Chris Smalling (Manchester United), Kyle Walker (Manchester City), Kieran Trippier (Tottenham); Eric Dier (Tottenham), Fabian Delph (Manchester City), Jake Livermore (West Brom), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Liverpool), Jesse Lingard (Manchester United), Dele Alli (Tottenham); Marcus Rashford (Manchester United), Harry Kane (Tottenham), Jermain Defoe (Bournemouth), Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool).
