Gareth Southgate: England Under 21s face Lithuania in October

Southgate takes charge of his first game on Thursday as the Young Lions' European Championship qualifying campaign commences against Moldova at the Madejski Stadium.

England then face Finland next Monday before qualification continues in October with a trip to San Marino ahead of Lithuania's visit to Ipswich.

"I'm really looking forward to this game," Southgate said. "Whenever we take our games all around the country, the reaction of supporters has been brilliant.

"I think we'll be seeing an exciting group of young players who people will look forward to going to watch. It's great news for us because I think we'll get a very good crowd there, they'll be very supportive.

"They've got a crowd that are knowledgeable about their football too, so that will be a real lift for us as a team."

Southgate could be forced to make additions to his squad for the Moldova match with Swansea midfielder Jonjo Shelvey and Sunderland striker Connor Wickham having withdrawn because of unspecified injuries.

Shelvey will also miss the Finland tie but Wickham could return to the squad after being assessed by club doctors.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
