England captain Harry Kane insists the Three Lions' squad are too united to be divided by the tension surrounding the Premier League title race and upcoming Champions League ties.

The English FA took to their official Twitter account to share a jovial looking Hudson-Odoi sharing his feelings on his call-up.

And unlike England camps of old where club rivalries have left to factions forming on global duty, Kane believes Gareth Southgate's squad will not be distracted ahead of Euro 2020 qualifiers against Czech Republic on Friday and away to Montenegro on Monday.

"He looked like he was enjoying it out there today, scoring a few goals in training".

"The youth aren't scared to go and express themselves, one vs. one".

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri is continuing to be conservative with his minutes, but needs to unleash him in the first team and should take a listen to comments from England captain. It is great sign in this country we are producing these type of players'.

"Our aim is to get as many of our players playing in the Premier League as we can".

"Callum has had a taste of cup competitions, a little bit in the Premier League. We'll see how his career progresses, if he does that at Chelsea or another team on loan".

"I've got no doubt he has the ability to play at the highest level". For young players coming through, it is vital that they play.

"Wherever he goes, he is good enough in my opinion from what I have seen potentially to be a regular at whatever team he plays at", Boothroyd told Sky Sports.

Kane said he has also enjoyed getting to know West Ham midfielder Declan Rice, who represented the Republic of Ireland three times at senior level but decided this month to make himself available for England.

There is certainly a lack of creativity going forward for the Blues when Eden Hazard is man marked out of the game, but the academy graduate can add another spark and it would be a huge mistake if they were to let him exit.

'The decision he made was the one he thought was best for his future and no-one can blame him for that.

"I can tell just by being with him for a couple of days he will give everything for his country".
