Four Chelsea players were called up to the England squad, for the upcoming international games.

England boss Gareth Southgate named Reece James, Ben Chilwell, Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham in his squad.

See the squad below

Goalkeepers: Dean Henderson, Jordan Pickford, Nick Pope.

Defenders: Trent Alexander-Arnold, Ben Chilwell, Conor Coady, Eric Dier, Joe Gomez, Reece James, Michael Keane, Harry Maguire, Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Tyrone Mings, Bukayo Saka, Kieran Tripper, Kyle Walker.

Midfielders: Phil Foden, Jordan Henderson, Mason Mount, Declan Rice, James Ward-Prowse, Harry Winks.

Forwards: Tammy Abraham, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Jack Grealish, Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho, Raheem Sterling.

Meanwhile, former Chelsea star Joe Cole has backed Reece James to cause selection problems for Southgate, who already has Trent Alexander-Arnold and Kyle Walker in his England team.

“I’ve always known the lad’s talent but he’s taken to professional first-team elite football like a duck to water,” Cole added.

“His technique and his ability to put it on a sixpence anywhere from anywhere sort of 30 yards near the goal, he can put it where he wants. His right foot is that good.

“It’s going to be interesting trying to shoehorn him into a team with Trent [Alexander-Arnold], with Kyle [Walker], we’ve got so many great right-backs.

“But he’s got the ability to play in two or three different positions, like the other two have as well. We have an abundance of talent.”
