Lewis Cook has said he is honoured to have been called up to the England squad for Tuesday's friendly international against Brazil.

Gareth Southgate has added Liverpool striker Dominic Solanke to his squad as well as Bournemouth midfielder Cook for the Wembley clash.

Manchester United defender Phil Jones has been forced to withdraw because of the thigh injury he sustained after 25 minutes of Friday's goalless draw with Germany.

Dele Alli, Harry Kane, Harry Winks, Jack Butland, Gary Cahill, Jordan Henderson, Raheem Sterling and Fabian Delph were already unavailable for the Brazil game because of injury.

Manchester City goalkeeper Angus Gunn, who is on loan at Norwich City, was brought into the squad on Friday to replace Stoke City's Butland, who has broken a finger.

"I am incredibly honoured and proud to be called up for the England senior squad. A huge achievement for me and my family. Thank you for all the kind messages," said Cook on Twitter.

Southgate had said on Friday: "It would be a good experience for a couple of the Under-21s to have a few days with the seniors and to be involved against Brazil would be a brilliant experience."

Solanke was top scorer for England's Under-20 World Cup-winning side during the summer, while Cook was the captain.

Brazil, who beat Japan 3-1 on Friday, are 6/1 to triumph against England 2-0 while Southgate's team are 5/1 to win the friendly.
