​Conte backs Chelsea signing Barkley to make World Cup squad

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has challenged Ross Barkley to win a place in England World Cup squad.

New Chelsea signing Ross Barkley has not played any football so far this season due to injury.

But nonetheless, Conte believes that the attacking midfielder has what it takes to make it into the England World Cup squad later this year.

Conte said: "We have five months to show he deserves a call with the national team for the World Cup. I hope [he gets one], because it means he will do very well with us."
