World Cup: Gallagher called up for England

Crystal Palace loanee Conor Gallagher has been called up to the England squad for Monday's final World Cup qualifier in San Marino.

England are 1/100 to leave with three points and secure their place at the World Cup next year, while the hosts are 50/1 to triumph and the draw is 25/1.

Impressive club form

Gallagher has made a big impression at Selhurst Park in his temporary stay from Chelsea and he was on hand to score the second goal when the Eagles claimed a surprise 2-0 win at champions Manchester City last month.

The midfielder also netted when Patrick Vieira's side beat Wolverhampton Wanderers in their last Premier League outing before the international break.

The 21-year-old, who has represented his country at all age groups from Under-17, has already enjoyed successful loan spells at Charlton, Swansea and West Brom and he has been called up to the senior side after a series of squad withdrawals following the 5-0 victory Gareth Southgate's side enjoyed over Albania on Friday.

That win, in which captain Harry Kane scored a hat-trick, was enough to virtually guarantee the Three Lions' place in the finals, which will be held during the middle of the domestic season for the first time.

Absentees mount for Southgate

Manchester City pair Jack Grealish and Raheem Sterling are among those sitting out, while Jordan Henderson, who scored his second international goal in Friday’s win, will also not make the journey.

An FA statement said: "Conor Gallagher has received his first senior call up to the England senior men's squad.

"However, Jordan Henderson, Jack Grealish, Raheem Sterling, Mason Mount and Luke Shaw will not travel to San Marino."
