New Manchester United signing, Aaron Wan-Bissaka has gotten his first call to join the England squad. Also called to join the squad is Aston Villa centre-back, Tyrone Mings.
Both players will feature for the Three Lions of England as they prepare for Euro 2020 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Kosovo, matches which will be played on the 7th and 10th of September respectively.
Speaking on Wan-Bissaka and Mings’ invitation, England coach Gareth Southgate said:
“Tyrone’s an interesting case as he entered the game a bit later and hasn’t played as much as a centre-back.
“He had a big injury at Bournemouth but I really like his leadership qualities.
“He’s an outstanding athlete and I see a lot of potential and time for growth given the number of games he’s played.
“Aaron adapted very well to a high-profile move with the intensity and pressure.”
Reacting to his invitation, Wan-Bissaka who joined United from Crystal Palace this summer, took to Twitter:
”Proud to have been called up to the England squad. Looking forward to meeting up with the boys ahead of two big games”
