Alderweireld has been out for almost eight weeks with a knee injury and is most likely to be named on the bench for the Group E match at Wembley.

Erik Lamela is unavailable as he has a family problem in Argentina while Ben Davies and Vincent Janssen are both still recovering from ankle injuries.

Provisional squad: Lloris, Vorm, Lopez, Rose, Davies, Vertonghen, Alderweireld, Carter-Vickers, Wimmer, Walker, Trippier, Dier, Wanyama, Winks, Dembele, Eriksen, Alli, Sissoko, Onomah, Nkoudou, Son, Kane.
