Fulham's Ryan Sessegnon has been called up to the England Under-21 squad for the first time.

The 17-year-old has scored 14 goals in 40 appearances for the Cottagers this season.

He helped the England Under-19 side win Euro 2017 last summer and has made 14 appearances for the Young Lions but will now be involved in Aidy Boothroyd's squad.

The Under-21s host Romania in a friendly at Wolves on March 24 before their Euro 2019 qualifier against Ukraine at Bramall Lane in Sheffield on March 27.

Tammy Abraham, Angus Gunn and Harry Winks are all included in the squad, with Liverpool's Ovie Ejaria - on loan at Sunderland - handed his first call-up.

"It's been a good start to our new Euro campaign," said Boothroyd, ahead of his squad meeting up at St George's Park next week.

"We've got 13 points from the five games, a five-point lead at the top of our group and after analysing all of those games from different areas, we still think we could be better, so that's a real positive.

"We'll now be working hard to make sure we keep improving on our games so far and we've got two matches this month against Romania and Ukraine to try and do that."
