England: Tyreke Mitchell and Kyle Walker-Peters receive first senior call-ups

Mitchell had a good season at Crystal Palace.

Crystal Palace full-back Tyreke Mitchell and Southampton defender Kyle Walker-Peters have received their first England call-ups.

England will host Switzerland on Saturday and will play Cote d’Ivoire on Tuesday in both friendly matches at Wembley.

They will be joined by West Bromwich goalkeeper Sam Johnston and Aston Villa striker Ollie Watkins.

This follows the departures of Aaron Ramsdale, Trent Alexander-Arnold, Rhys James and Tammy Abraham due to injuries.

It will be the first cap for England at any level for the 22-year-old London-born Mitchell, who played for AFC Wembley as a youth before joining Brentford’s youth team. He made 57 appearances for Palace, scoring one goal.

Walker-Peters, 24, winner of the 2017 Under-20 World Cup, has played for the under-21s and has made 28 appearances for the Saints this season, scoring three goals.
