England take on both Switzerland and Ivory Coast, who Guehi is also eligible to represent at international level, at Wembley.

They first face the Swiss on Saturday 26 March before taking on the African nation three days’ later.

The camp will be a vital one for Southgate as it is one of just three before the team heads to the Middle East in November.
