New York City midfielder Jack Harrison has been called up by England Under-21s for the first time for the Euro 2019 qualifiers against Scotland and Andorra.

Harrison has been drafted in following the withdrawals through injury of Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Sheyi Ojo.

Harrison, 20, began his career as a youth player at Manchester United but moved to the United States aged 14 and made his debut for New York City in May last year.

He scored his first professional goal on his first start against Real Salt Lake in June 2016 and was nominated for the Major League Soccer Rookie of the Year award.

The Young Lions are joint top of Group 4 with Ukraine after a 1-1 draw in Holland and a 3-0 win over Latvia in their opening games.

They face Scotland in Middlesbrough on Friday before travelling to Andorra for a game on October 10.
