by Matthew Gamble @efc_mattgamble

Everton's Luke Garbutt has been called up to the England Under-20 squad for the forthcoming World Cup.

Left-back Garbutt replaces injured Leeds defender Sam Byram and becomes the fifth Everton player in the 21-man squad.

Young Blues stars now make up almost a quarter of boss Peter Taylor's party for the tournament which begins in Turkey later this month.

Ross Barkley, John Lundstram, John Stones and Chris Long are the other Everton players involved.

The England squad arrive at their first training base later on Wednesday with group games against Iraq, Chile and Egypt commencing on 23 June.
