Arsenal defender Calum Chambers has called on Twitter for England Under-21s to finish their European Championship qualifying campaign with a win.
Aidy Boothroyd’s side face Bosnia & Herzegovina on Tuesday at Walsall’s Banks Stadium, after qualifying for 2017’s Championships on Thursday with a 1-0 win away in Kazakhstan.
Chambers, who partnered Arsenal teammate Rob Holding at the heart of England’s defence during the win, posted on his personal Twitter account, “let’s end it with a win.”

The former Southampton star is currently on loan with Premier League new boys Middlesbrough, and has made two appearances for Aitor Karanka’s side despite starting for the Gunners in their opening Premier League match against Liverpool.
Chambers has fallen down the pecking order at the Emirates following the signing of Germany international Shkodran Mustafi. Brazilian defender Gabriel, Holding and Laurent Koscielny are considered ahead of Chambers, while Per Mertesacker continues to recover from injury.
