Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah handed first Three Lions call-up

Arsenal striker Eddie Nketiah has been handed his first senior England call-up after being picked in the squad for September's matches against Ukraine and Scotland.

Nketiah has scored twice in his three Premier League appearances this season and is England's record Under-21 scorer with 16 goals.

Al Ettifaq midfielder Jordan Henderson has been named in Gareth Southgate's 26-man squad despite England's vice-captain moving to the Saudi Arabian club this summer.

Southgate admits he has some concerns around the 33-year-old's decision to join the Saudi Pro League.

The Three Lions boss said: "We've watched every game, the key as we move forward is going to be the physical intensity of the league, because of the heat as well, whether that is going to allow him to perform at the level we need."
