England U21s: Tariq Lamptey called up but Eberechi Eze and Reece James withdraw

Tariq Lamptey has earned his first England U21s call-up but boss Aidy Boothroyd will be without Eberechi Eze and Reece James for the games against Kosovo and Austria.

Lamptey ended the season in fine form, impressing in Brighton’s last eight matches following his move to the Amex Stadium from Chelsea in January.
