England boss Gareth Southgate names his squad for games with the United States and Croatia at 2pm.

Dunk was called up to the squad last month for the Nations League games with Croatia and Spain but was an unused substitute in both matches.

Since that call-up, Dunk has helped Brighton keep back-to-back clean sheets in 1-0 wins over Newcastle and Wolves and scored his first goal of the season in the 3-1 defeat at Everton.

The 26-year-old, who has been in impressive form in recent weeks, also made a mistake for the Toffees' third goal in front of Southgate at Goodison Park.

James Tarkowski, who Dunk replaced in the last squad, has struggled recently at Burnley, who have conceded 13 goals in their last three matches and Harry Maguire limped off in Leicester's win at Cardiff last weekend, so will be a doubt.

Michael Keane could also come into contention after some impressive performances for Everton recently.

Former England captain Wayne Rooney has already been named in the squad for the United States game. He will win his 120th and final cap next Thursday (November 15, 8pm).

The Croatia Nations League match takes place on Sunday, November 18, with a 2pm kick-off.
