    Fans will now see what numbers each player will sport on the back of the jerseys, which sees Jordan Pickford get the No.1 shirt. Fellow goalkeepers Nick Pope and Aaron Ramsdale have the No.13 and No.23 shirts respectively.

    Harry Maguire retains the No.6 he wore at Euro 2020 and at the 2018 World Cup.

    Jack Grealish has been handed the No.7, which is what he wore at Euro 2020, while Jordan Henderson has been given the No.8. Captain Harry Kane is No.9.

    Further down the squad, Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold will have the No.18 on the back of his shirt, while Jude Bellingham has moved to No.22, which is the number he has for club Borussia Dortmund.

    Bukayo Saka has moved from No.25 to No.17, the Arsenal star getting the number that has been worn by Jadon Sancho, who didn’t make the squad.

    Callum Wilson, who earned a call-up as Harry Kane’s understudy, is No.24, while Leicester star James Maddison gets the No.25 jersey. Bringing up the rear is Chelsea midfielder Conor Gallagher at No.26.

    There were some doubts about whether Maguire would make the cut and he even keeps his jersey
