Michael Keane has been drafted into the England squad for this month's games against Germany and Brazil.
The 24-year-old Everton defender returned from a recent injury in time to play in the Super Sunday 3-2 win over Watford.
Keane has now been added to the group of players due to report to St George's Park on Monday ahead of the upcoming double-header at Wembley Stadium.
If Keane features it would be his fifth England cap having made his debut in the 1-0 defeat by Germany in Dortmund in March.
Gareth Southgate's team will be without Dele Alli, who was ruled out on Sunday after suffering a hamstring injury before Tottenham's 1-0 win against Crystal Palace.
Harry Kane and Harry Winks - who were both substituted in that game at Wembley - will undergo further assessment at their club before joining up with England, as will Chelsea's Gary Cahill.
Jordan Henderson, who missed Liverpool's win over West Ham United due to a thigh problem, is also due to arrive later in the week.
Kane secured qualification for the World Cup finals in Russia next summer in a 1-0 win over Slovenia in October.
As part of the build-up to the tournament, England will welcome two footballing heavyweights to assist their preparation.
Reigning world champions Germany head to London on Friday, November 10, before five-time winners Brazil arrive four days later on Tuesday, November 14, with both games kicking off at 8pm.
