Ravel Morrison has been included in the latest England Under 21 squad.

The 20-year-old midfielder received his first ever call up for Gareth Southgate's squad ahead of the European Championship qualifiers against San Marino and Lithuania next week.

Previously capped at under 16, Under 17 and Under 18 level, Morrison - West Ham's leading goalscorer this season with three to his name - has never represented the Under 21s before but earned his place after impressing for the Hammers in the season's opening six matches.
