Wan-Bissaka named in England U21 squad

14 March 2019

Benteke has not been part of the Red Devils' squad since June 2018 with Batshuayi having played most recently as a substitute in a Nations League match in November.

Elsewhere, Jordan Ayew has kept his place in the Ghana squad since he and his brother Andre were recalled after a year's absence, and he will be joined by Jeffrey Schlupp who hasn't played internationally since September 2017.

Palace's most capped international player Wayne Hennessey has made the Wales squad while another perhaps forgone conclusion is Cheikhou Kouyate's selection for Senegal.

For Ivory Coast, Wilfried Zaha has been flown out for an Afcon qualifier against Rwanda on 23rd March and a friendly against Liberia the following Tuesday, though he is to have a hamstring injury assessed by the national team.
