England national team manager Gareth Southgate has given Borussia Dortmund's prolific starlet Jude Bellingham the green light to make his first senior cap tonight against Ireland.

The 17-year-old youngster has been in fine form for the German Club since making a switch from Birmingham City in the summer and has been rewarded for his stirrings of sublime performances for the Bundesliga outfit with a well-deserved first England call-up earlier this week.

My initial conversation with him was that you'll have a few days with us, we'll involve you in the game," the England boss explained in preparation for his side's clash against Ireland this evening. "We'll see how it goes, and that's going to be a brilliant experience for him.
“It’s always interesting to see the reaction when we select a player, because people are immediately talking about other players without understanding why we’ve called Jude up.”
Bellingham's invitation meant that neither Ross Barkley (Aston Villa) nor James Maddison (Leicester City) made it to the squad, a decision Southgate proceeded to explain.
