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.
