Chambers and Shaw among those included in Gareth Southgate’s squad.
England Under-21 manager Gareth Southgate has named his squad for the European Championship playoff with Croatia, with Arsenal’s Calum Chambers and Luke Shaw of Manchester United the surprise inclusions.
Many thought the two teenagers would have been in Roy Hodgson’s senior squad for the upcoming Euro 2016 qualifiers, but it is set to be a little longer before the Southampton academy products return.
West Bromwich Albion’s Saido Berahino has also been included, with the forward being another some thought Hodgson would name.
Here is the squad in full:
