LONDON (AP) — Tammy Abraham, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Joe Gomez have been called up by England for the first time for friendlies against Germany and Brazil.

The 20-year-old Abraham, a Chelsea striker on loan at Swansea, has only made 12 top-flight appearances in his career.

Loftus-Cheek is another Chelsea player currently out on loan, with the 21-year-old midfielder gaining Premier League experience at Crystal Palace.

Gomez, a 20-year-old defender, has been rewarded for his bright start to the season with Liverpool.

England is starting to prepare for the World Cup in June with a pair of friendlies at Wembley Stadium. England hosts Germany of Nov. 10 and Brazil on Nov. 14.
