West Ham star Aaron Cresswell was pictured on Twitter warming-up ahead of his first training session with the England after receiving a late call-up.
The left-back was brought into the England squad following an injury to Danny Drinkwater and could provide cover for Danny Rose in defence.

Rose is being monitored ahead of England’s clash against Scotland on Friday and the versatile Hammers’ star can provide cover in the left-back role as well as in midfield.
Cresswell joined up the with squad on Monday and looked focused in the image on Twitter as he hopes to make his international bow this week.
The 26 year-old suffered a long-term knee injury but has been in promising form since returning for West Ham, making four appearances since coming back.
He was selected ahead of Arsenal’s Kieran Gibbs, who was included in the last England squad, alongside Southampton left-back Ryan Bertrand.
