Conor Gallagher receives first call-up in England as Raheem Sterling, Jack Grealish and Jordan Henderson leave the squad

Loaned Crystal Palace player Conor Gallagher was called up for the senior England squad for the first time.

The 21-year-old midfielder, who is on loan at Selhurst Park from Chelsea, was rewarded by England manager Gareth Southgate after scoring four goals and adding two assists for Palace this season.

Gallagher’s call comes as Southgate faces several absences ahead of Monday’s World Cup qualifier in San Marino, a game England only need a point to secure their place at next year’s tournament.

Jordan Henderson and Jack Grealish have returned to Liverpool and Manchester City respectively for further injury assessment, while Raheem Sterling will miss the game for personal reasons.

Mason Mount and Luke Shaw, who missed Friday’s 5-0 win over Albania, will no longer join the squad. The Chelsea Mount midfielder continues to suffer from the after-effects of dental surgery, while Shaw recovers from a concussion.
