Joining Fulham as an academy player, Bettinelli is currently enjoying his first season as a Premier League player with the London club this season.

Promoted from the Championship last season, this is the second time he has been named in the England squad by Gareth Southgate.

Son of Fulham academy's goalkeeping coach Vic, Marcus Bettinelli does - as you may have guessed - have some Italian links on his father's side.

Also primed for making a first appearance for England are Leicester City's James Maddison, Derby County loanee Mason Mount and Dortmund's former Manchester City man Jadon Sancho.

The young English forward has been in scintillating form for the German side this season and will fancy himself a force to be reckoned with in years to come.
