Southampton midfielder Ward-Prowse called into England squad

Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse has been called into the England squad.

The Sun says he has been drafted into the England squad - with Jordan Henderson believed to have pulled out.

In-form Southampton star Ward-Prowse has hit six goals in his last nine league games.

Despite that purple patch, Gareth Southgate opted against recalling the midfielder for the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Czech Republic and Montenegro.

But he has now been added to the squad with one player pulling out who is believed to be Henderson, who sat out Liverpool's 2-1 win at Fulham after twisting his ankle against Bayern Munich.

Ward-Prowse's one and only previous cap came against Germany in a 1-0 friendly defeat in March 2017.
