Levi Colwill joins England squad, easing fears over Chelsea defender’s injury situation

Colwill played in the defeat to Nottingham Forest on Saturday.

Levi Colwill has joined the England squad, easing fears over the Chelsea defender’s injury situation.

Mauricio Pochettino used Colwill as a left-back with Ben Chilwell featuring higher up the pitch. The 20-year-old has played every minute in the Premier League this season.

Colwill came off in the Carabao Cup win over AFC Wimbledon, walking straight down the tunnel as he was replaced, but Chelsea boss played down the severity of the situation.

“No, he’s not injured,” the Chelsea boss said. “It’s not a big issue, small problem. He got ice on his ankle but it’s not going to be a problem for the weekend.”

Colwill played in the defeat to Nottingham Forest on Saturday, though it had been reported that the 20-year-old defender needed scans on a potential hamstring issue before travelling for international duty.

Chilwell and Conor Gallagher join Colwill in the squad, but there was no recall for Raheem Sterling despite his impressive form to start the season.
