After Jordan Henderson, Jack Grealish, Raheem Sterling, Mason Mount, and Luke Shaw withdrew on Sunday, Crystal Palace midfielder Conor Gallagher has been called into England's squad for Monday's World Cup qualifier in San Marino.

To qualify for next year's tournament in Qatar, the Three Lions simply need to avoid defeat against the minnows in Serravalle.

Henderson of Liverpool and Grealish of Manchester City have returned to their respective clubs for further injury evaluation.

Due to a personal matter, City forward Sterling is unavailable, while Chelsea midfielder Mount requires dental surgery and Manchester United left-back Shaw is on a concussion protocol.

Gallagher earns his first senior call-up after being promoted from the Under-21s.

This season, the 21-year-old has been a revelation for Palace, scoring four goals for Patrick Vieira's side.
