James Ward-Prowse has been called up to Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the forthcoming UEFA Euro 2020 qualifiers against Czech Republic and Montenegro.

Ward-Prowse, who has been in scintillating form for Saints, netting six goals in his last nine league games, including two stunning free-kicks against Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.

The 24-year-old has been integral since the arrival of Ralph Hasenhuttl and will be hoping to earn his second cap, after making his Three Lions debut in a friendly against Germany back in March 2017.

England will take on Czech Republic at Wembley on Friday 22nd March at 7.45pm GMT, before travelling to Montenegro three days later.

Manchester City pair John Stones and Fabian Delph and Chelsea’s Ruben Loftus-Cheek have withdrawn through injury and Southgate will be working with a squad of 23 players.
