West Ham United's Leo Chambers has been named in the England Under-19 squad for their European Championship Qualifiers in Slovenia next month.

Chambers will travel with the Young Lions to face hosts Slovenia, Andorra and Switzerland in early October with the top two teams in the group progressing to the Elite Qualifying Round next May.

The call-up comes in the same week as the young defender impressed during only his second senior appearance for the club, playing the full 90 minutes in a 3-2 win over Cardiff City in the Capital One Cup Third Round.

Chambers had made his West Ham debut in the previous round, again playing the whole match as the Hammers overcame Cheltenham Town 2-1 at the Boleyn Ground.

The 18-year-old is no stranger to the international scene having scored on his last appearance for the England Under-19s as he netted the third goal in a 6-1 rout of Estonia earlier in the month.

The defender, who can play anywhere across the back four, has also represented England at Under-16, 17 and Under-18 level, making a combined total of 12 appearances.

Chambers will be hopeful that he can help his country secure their place at next summer's finals which take place in Hungary.

The defender has been in fine form for West Ham's Development Squad so far this season helping the team to four wins from their first six matches of the campaign.
