Chelsea’s “youth revolution” has now grown beyond just Stamford Bridge, and reached the England national team as well.
In his previous call-up, Gareth Southgate called upon the services of Fikayo Tomori, Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham (and Ross Barkley, too). This time he has also added Callum Hudson-Odoi. Chelsea's quintet of England internationals have an average age of 21.2.
England’s upcoming matches against Montenegro at home, and Kosovo away are the last in their Euro 2020 qualifying group. With 15 points in six matches, they lead Group A and are well on course to next summer's main event — despite the stunning 2-1 loss to the Czech Republic back in October.
The full English squad is as follows:
GOALKEEPERS: Tom Heaton (Aston Villa), Jordan Pickford (Everton), Nick Pope (Burnley)
DEFENDERS: Trent Alexander-Arnold (Liverpool), Ben Chilwell (Leicester), Joe Gomez (Liverpool), Harry Maguire (Manchester United), Tyrone Mings (Aston Villa), Danny Rose (Tottenham), John Stones (Manchester City), Fikayo Tomori (Chelsea), Kieran Trippier (Atletico Madrid)
MIDFIELDERS: Ross Barkley (Chelsea), Fabian Delph (Everton), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), James Maddison (Leicester City), Mason Mount (Chelsea), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Liverpool), Declan Rice (West Ham), Harry Winks (Tottenham)
FORWARDS: Tammy Abraham (Chelsea), Callum Hudson-Odoi (Chelsea), Harry Kane (Tottenham), Marcus Rashford (Manchester United), Jadon Sancho (Borussia Dortmund), Raheem Sterling (Manchester City), Callum Wilson (Bournemouth)
