A squad of 16 players will attend a pre-Ashes training camp this weekend at St George’s Park, the Football Association’s national football centre based at Burton-Upon-Trent.

Yorkshire’s Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow, fresh off their World Cup winning exploits, have been chosen in both the training squad, and the squad to take on Ireland in a four-day Test starting next Wednesday.
