NICK Pope has been included in the England squad for the Euro 2020 qualifying matches against Bulgaria and Kosovo.

It's Pope's first call-up since being involved in the squad that went to the World Cup in Russia last year.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche thinks his centre back pairing of James Tarkowski and Ben Mee were unfortunate to miss out on being selected.

"The starting point is with Pope, we’re very pleased about that," said Dyche.

"He had a very tough season last season with his injury, it was out of his hands.

"For him to come back as fit and well as he has done and performing is good for him, good for us and obviously, getting back into the national side is really pleasing.

"Tarky and Ben Mee are two players who I think are very good players and have started the season very clear minded and very focussed on the job in hand.

"You never know, some players get overlooked as they get older. I think Westy’s been in great form. Who knows?

"Gareth’s been fair, he comes to our games a lot. I think we’ve got some good players and they deserve a bit of recognition, if it comes their way then we’ll be delighted for them."
