Chelsea’s Fikayo Tomori has received his first senior call-up for England as Gareth Southgate names a largely unchanged squad from last month’s wins over Bulgaria and Kosovo.
Having impressed at Derby last season under Frank Lampard, the 21 year-old has again impressed under the same manager this season, forcing his way into the starting lineup for three of the Blues’ last four matches.
Tomori’s fellow teammate, Tammy Abraham also features in the squad for the first time since November 2017, having scored eight goals in 10 appearances so far this season across all competitions.
Fabian Delph meanwhile returns after missing last month’s qualifiers through injury as Gareth Southgate names a largely unchanged squad apart from those three additions whilst Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jesse Lingard both drop out.
England face Czech Republic in Prague on 11 October before visiting Bulgaria in Sofia on 14 October.
