England call for Loftus-Cheek and Barkley

Ruben Loftus-Cheek has been rewarded for his fine recent Chelsea performances by earning a recall to the England squad.

The midfielder, who netted a hat-trick against BATE and scored against Burnley recently, will be part of the Three Lions squad for two upcoming fixtures.

Gareth Southgate’s side take on the USA on Thursday, November 15 in a Wayne Rooney Foundational international, before taking on Croatia on Sunday, November 18 in a UEFA Nations League clash. Both games will take place at Wembley.

Loftus-Cheek’s Chelsea team-mate, Ross Barkley, has also been named in the England squad for the forthcoming games.
