The young English quartet have been rewarded thanks to their fine form for their clubs in the Premier League so far this term.

The Three Lions take on Bulgaria at Wembley on September 7 and Kosovo at Southampton’s St Mary’s ground just three days later.

Meanwhile, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will cap his arduous return from a serious knee injury with an England recall.

The call-up for the Liverpool midfielder marks another significant milestone in his comeback that left him on the sidelines for a year.

Oxlade-Chamberlain made his last appearance for England in the 1-1 draw with Italy in March 2018 and suffered the setback the following month when playing for Liverpool in a Champions League tie against Roma. 

The 26-year-old has started games against Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup final and Southampton in the Premier League this season for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

He also featured as a substitute during the recent 3-1 victory over his former club Arsenal at Anfield.    

England have started their Euro 2020 qualifying campaign in emphatic style, picking up maximum points after thrashing both the Czech Republic and Montenegro. 

Southgate’s side saw off Czech Republic 5-0 at Wembley before humiliating Montenegro 5-1 away from home back in March.
