Cole Palmer, Rico Lewis And Ezri Konsa Get First England Call-ups


November 14, 2023

Rico Lewis, Cole Palmer and Ezri Konsa have been called up to the England senior squad for the first time.

Chelsea forward Palmer and Man City defender Lewis have been elevated from the U21s squad for the Euro 2024 qualifiers against Malta and North Macedonia.

Meanwhile, Aston Villa defender Konsa, who won the Under-20s World Cup with England in 2017, gets his first senior call-up following a great run of form for Unai Emery’s side.

The trio replace James Maddison, Callum Wilson and Lewis Dunk, who pulled out of Gareth Southgate’s squad with injuries over the weekend.
