- James Justin has been called up for the England senior squad for the first time
- The Leicester City full-back has represented his country at Under-20s and Under-21s level
- England have four UEFA Nations League games coming up in June
- The Three Lions have recently reached the semi-finals of the World Cup and final of the European Championships

Justin, 24, has risen through the youth ranks with England, representing both the Under-20s and Under-21s over recent seasons. Since joining the Foxes in 2019, the former Luton Town defender has made 68 appearances, scoring four goals, despite suffering an ACL injury in 2020/21.

He was an integral figure behind Luton's successive promotions between 2017 and 2019, elevating the Bedfordshire club to the Sky Bet Championship. More recently, City's No.2 has also represented Brendan Rodgers' side in the UEFA Europa League and the UEFA Europa Conference League.

This call-up means he could make his senior debut for England in the Nations League next month. The Three Lions first travel to Hungary on Saturday 4 June (5pm kick-off), before tackling Germany in Munich on Tuesday 7 June (7:45pm kick-off).

Two home games, against Italy on Saturday 11 June (7:45pm kick-off) and Hungary on Tuesday 14 June (7:45pm kick-off), then follow for Gareth Southgate's UEFA EURO 2020 finalists. Make sure to check back to LCFC.com over the summer for more news on Leicester City's international representation.
