Chelsea fullback Chilwell, Roma's Abraham land late England calls

Chelsea fullback Ben Chilwell has earned a late call to the England squad.

Chilwell has replaced Reece James in the England squad ahead of the Three Lions' World Cup qualifiers against Andorra and Hungary.

James picked up an ankle injury against Manchester City 10 days ago, and Thomas Tuchel reported in his press conference on Friday there was no chance the right-back could join up with England as he continues his recovery from injury.

Chilwell, who was not named in the September England squad, has been called up in James' place and will hope to get his first minutes for the Three Lions since March.

Tammy Abraham, who joined Roma from Chelsea in August, is also added to the Three Lions squad.
