Ben Chilwell, left alongside Harry Winks and James Maddison, will join the England senior squad to replace Luke Shaw

Ben Chilwell has been promoted to the England senior squad following Luke Shaw's withdrawal from the group.

The Leicester City defender, who won his first cap in last month's win over Switzerland, was initially called up by the Under-21s but will now travel to Croatia and Spain later this week.

Shaw reported to St. George’s Park on Monday afternoon along with the rest of Gareth Southgate’s squad, but has now returned to Manchester United after being ruled out through injury.

As a result of Chilwell’s promotion to the senior party, Jay Dasilva – currently on loan at Bristol City from Chelsea – will join up with Aidy Boothroyd’s Young Lions ahead of their U21 EURO qualifiers against Andorra and Scotland after initially being part of the U20s.

Watch the U21s in action against Andorra at Chesterfield on Thursday. Tickets are on sale for just £10 for adults and £5 for concessions.
