(Reuters) - England have called up Leicester City duo Ben Chilwell and Demarai Gray for Tuesday’s friendly against Switzerland at the King Power Stadium, the English Football Association said on Sunday.

Chilwell and Gray will not travel out to Latvia with the England Under-21s squad on Monday and will join Gareth Southgate’s senior squad for the first time.

Left back Chilwell replaces Luke Shaw, who received a blow to his head in Saturday’s 2-1 defeat by Spain in their Nations League opener.

Shaw remained at St. George’s Park on Sunday for further rest and monitoring having sustained concussion and will report back to Manchester United on Monday.

Forward Gray could replace United’s Marcus Rashford who also picked up a knock against Spain.
