Wayne Rooney was left out of the England squad for June’s matches against Scotland and France on Thursday.

The 31-year-old, who has 119 caps, has only started 15 league matches for Manchester United this season.

Tottenham right-back Kieran Trippier has been called up for the first time for the World Cup qualifier in Glasgow and friendly at the Stade de France.

Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland returns, having recovered from the ankle injury suffered against Germany in March 2016.

Rooney’s United team-mate, striker Marcus Rashford, is once more included in coach Gareth Southgate’s party.

Burnley centre-back Michael Keane misses out, having missed the Clarets’ last three games through injury, and Everton midfielder Ross Barkley has a small injury.

England travel to Hampden Park on 10 June for their qualifier against Scotland. Southgate’s side lead Group F with 13 points after five games. Scotland are fourth with seven points.

They then travel to France for a friendly on 13 June.

Southgate said, “The Scotland game is one of football’s great fixtures.”

“We’re in a place in the group where a win can really put us in a very strong position, and that’s what we want to achieve.

“France is a great challenge for us. Our ambition with our friendly matches is to play the best possible teams – we’ve done that by playing Spain and Germany already.”
