England coach Southgate: Liverpool defender Gomez in our plans, but...

Liverpool defender Joe Gomez has been assured by England coach Gareth Southgate that he's in his plans.

Southgate admits, however, they cannot rush Gomez's return as he completes his comeback from knee surgery.

He said: “Joe we kept in contact with throughout his rehab. We would be very cautious about when we put Joe back in.

“The rehab from that injury is a really important one to get right, he needs to be settled in with Liverpool with plenty of minutes on the pitch feeling in a good place with al of that before we start thinking of selecting him with us.

“But he's a boy we think a lot of and its good to see him close and available for selection which is great."
