Southampton defender Kyle Walker-Peters and Crystal Palace full-back Tyrick Mitchell have been given their first England senior call-ups. England will be hosting Switzerland on Saturday before taking on Ivory Coast on Tuesday with both friendly games at Wembley. They will be joined in the squad by West Brom’s Sam Johnstone and Aston Villa’s Ollie Watkins.
It follows the withdrawals of Arsenal goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, Liverpool right-back Trent Alexander-Arnold, Chelsea’s Reece James, and Tammy Abraham through injury. They will be hoping to continue their perfect form. Mitchell’s call is his first involvement with England at any level while Walker-Peters is a 2017 Under-20 World Cup winner. He has earned caps from Under-18 through to Under-21 level.
24-year-old Walker-Peters earned caps from Under-18 through to Under-21 level and has made 28 appearances for Saints this season, scoring three goals.
