Tottenham striker Harry Kane is one of nine Champions League finalists named in England's initial 27-man squad for the inaugural Nations League finals despite his fitness being "an unknown".

England captain Kane has not played since injuring his left ankle in the first leg of Spurs' Champions League quarter-final victory over Manchester City on 9 April.

Southgate still has questions around his squad, hit by the serious injury to Chelsea's Ruben Loftus-Cheek, but he has clearly had a positive health bulletin over injured Spurs pair Harry Kane and Harry Winks.

The stability and lack of surprises in England manager Gareth Southgate's squad for the Nations League finals is a strong indicator of its outstanding progress.

That match and the Europa League final between Arsenal and Chelsea in Baku does complicate matters - 10 squad members are involved - and, with Manchester City players and Borussia Dortmund's Jadon Sancho arriving late, only 12 from the 27-man squad will be at the first gathering.

"He's working to be fit for the [Champions League] final," said manager Gareth Southgate.

England play their Nations League semi-final against the Netherlands on 6 June in Portugal, just five days after the Champions League showpiece between Liverpool and Spurs.
