Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka was not called by England manager Gareth Southgate in his 24-man squad ahead of next month’s Nations League games against Iceland and Denmark.
The squad was announced on Tuesday with notable names listed.
Saka was one of Arsenal’s best performers last season after emerging their highest assist provider.
The 18-year-old’s impressive performance saw him finish the campaign as the third best player at Arsenal last season.
Despite his brilliant campaign for the Gunners, Southgate did not consider him for a call up to the senior side.

Meanwhile, there are first call-ups for Manchester City midfielder Phil Foden, Manchester United striker Mason Greenwood and Leeds midfielder Kalvin Phillips.
United’s skipper Harry Maguire who was arrested in Greece made the cut as well as Southampton striker Danny Ings and Dean Henderson who was on loan to Sheffield United from the Red Devils.
Tottenham Hotspur skipper Harry Kane has been selected despite having been in quarantine following a trip to the Bahamas.
Midfielder Jack Grealish, who helped Aston Villa retain their Premier League status last season, has not been included in the 24-man squad.
