The Cherries star is rewarded for his seven goals this season, while Del Alli, Jesse Lingard and Ruben Loftus-Cheek return having missed the previous squad through injury

Callum Wilson has received his first call-up to the senior England squad for upcoming games against the United States and World Cup finalists Croatia.

The uncapped Bournemouth striker, 26, has been rewarded for his fine start to the season, which has seen him score seven goals for the high-flying Cherries – who currently sit sixth in the Premier League.

Meanwhile, Dele Alli, Jessie Lingard and Ruben Loftus-Cheek all return to Gareth Southgate’s side having missed out on the last squad through injury.

There’s also a place for Everton defender Michael Keane, whose last appearance in the Three Lions squad came back in October of last year.

The squad also boasts the return of Wayne Rooney, who will make his 120th and final England appearance in the friendly against USA at Wembley Stadium.
