Everton hotshot Dominic Calvert-Lewin received his first call-up to the English national team Thursday after scoring eight goals in five games to start the 2020-21 season.

Calvert-Lewin will be joined by Arsenal defender Bukayo Saka and Leicester City midfielder Harvey Barnes, who received their first senior nods ahead of games against Wales, Belgium, and Denmark.

Manchester United captain Harry Maguire returned to the Three Lions' setup a month after his arrest in Greece for aggravated assault. Maguire was excused from international duty after he was convicted by a Greek court. The 27-year-old is appealing the guilty verdict.

Manager Gareth Southgate did not select Mason Greenwood and Phil Foden. The two youngsters were sent home in September after they were caught breaking quarantine protocol with women in their hotel.

England will face Wales in a friendly at Wembley Stadium on Oct. 8 before hosting Belgium three days later in Nations League action. Southgate's side will complete the international window with a Nations League match against Denmark on Oct. 14.

Here's England's 30-man squad:

Goalkeepers: Jordan Pickford (Everton), Nick Pope (Burnley), Dean Henderson (Manchester United)

Defenders: Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Ben Chilwell (Chelsea), Conor Coady (Wolves), Eric Dier (Tottenham), Joe Gomez (Liverpool), Michael Keane (Everton), Harry Maguire (Manchester United), Ainsley Maitland-Niles (Arsenal), Tyrone Mings (Aston Villa), Bukayo Saka (Arsenal), Kieran Trippier (Atletico Madrid), Kyle Walker (Manchester City)

Midfielders: Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Jack Grealish (Aston Villa), Mason Mount (Chelsea), Kalvin Phillips (Leeds), Declan Rice (West Ham), James Ward-Prowse (Southampton), Harry Winks (Tottenham)

Forwards: Tammy Abraham (Chelsea), Harvey Barnes (Leicester), Dominic Calvert-Lewin (Everton), Danny Ings (Southampton), Harry Kane (Tottenham), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United), Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City)
