The Leicester City youngsters have reportedly been called in Gareth Southgate’s squad for Tuesday’s friendly against Switzerland at King Power Stadium.

It stands to reason Southgate will hand them on-field debuts in the friendly at their club’s home ground.

The 21-year-old Chilwell is a left back who has also played a bit more advanced during his time at Leicester, and has represented England at four youth levels.

Gray, 22, has the same background with England, arriving from Birmingham City to become a significant part of Claude Puel’s side.

England lost controversially in Saturday’s UEFA Nations League match, a 2-1 decision against Spain at Wembley Stadium.
