Borussia Dortmund youngster Jude Bellingham called up for England

Jude Bellingham has been added to England's squad for their upcoming games against the Republic of Ireland, Belgium and Iceland after the withdrawals of Trent Alexander-Arnold and James Ward-Prowse.

Still only 17, Bellingham already has four U21 caps to his name. The youngster has hit the ground running since his summer switch to Borussia Dortmund from Birmingham City with a goal and two assists in 11 games from the base of BVB's midfield.

England play Ireland in a friendly at Wembley on Thursday before facing Belgium and Iceland in UEFA Nations League Group A2. Should he feature in the former game, Bellingham would become the Three Lions' third-youngest player at 17 years, four months and 15 days of age.

Bellingham joins recent clubmate Jadon Sancho in the England squad. Jamie Bynoe-Gittens - who also recently signed from Manchester City - remains with the U16s.
