Leeds United midfielder Kalvin Phillips has been called up to the England squad for next month's Nations League fixtures.

It is the first call-up to the national team for Phillips, 24, who last month helped Leeds United to a return to the Premier League for the first time in 16 years.

England play Iceland and Denmark in their Nations League opening matches in September.

  • Iceland v England (Saturday 5 September, 2020)

  • Denmark v England (Tuesday 8 September, 2020)


Meanwhile, three other players from the Calendar region have also been called up by Gareth Southgate.

Mason Greenwood

Bradford-born Manchester United frontman Mason Greenwood has been named in the squad for the first time.

His teammate Harry Maguire, who is from Sheffield, has also been called up despite being on trial on the Greek island of Syros after an alleged altercation with police officers.

Kyle Walker, the Manchester City defender from Sheffield, is the other player listed in Southgate's squad.
