Chuba Akpom has been named in Gareth Southgate’s England u21 squad ahead of their match against the USA u23s on the 3rd September.

The 19-year-old loanee has been on fire while at Hull City so far this season. The forward has scored two goals in five appearances and seems to be impressing at the Championship side.

After only making his debut for the England u20s in September 2014, Akpom is thrilled to get his first call-up.

The youngster scored four goals in eight appearances for the younger national side and it looks as if the Englishman has a bright future ahead of him.
