Gary Cahill is all alone for Chelsea in the latest England squad

Richard Heathcote

England have named their latest squad for October's Euro 2016 qualifiers, and Chelsea have only a single representative in that squad. Gary Cahill will be the lone Blues player in the three lions shirt, with the full squad as follows:

Fraser Forster, Ben Foster, Joe Hart, Leighton Baines, Gary Cahill, Nathaniel Clyne, Kieran Gibbs, John Stones, Phil Jagielka, Fabian Delph, Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana, James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jonjo Shelvey (not a joke), Jack Wilshere, Andros Townsend, Raheem Sterling, Danny Welbeck, Rickie Lambert, Wayne Rooney

While I laughed more than I should at the inclusion of Jonjo Shelvey, the fact that the release didn't seem to realize that Welbeck was playing for Arsenal made me laugh even harder:

Cahill will likely start both of England's qualifiers, and it would be a big surprise if he didn't play the full 90 minutes in both of them. Here's hoping he stays healthy.
