Nathaniel is in Clyne for an England call up after announced in Liverpool's Champions League squad

Liverpool defender Nathaniel Clyne is being overwhelmingly backed for a call up to the England squad this summer.

The flurry of bets follows the announcement that the defender has been named in the 25-man Liverpool squad for their tie with Porto.

It’s the first time he’s trained this season, and if punters are correct, he could well be an underdog selection for Russia come the summer. Not playing a single minute this season has not dissuaded 37% of punters who have staked their cash on him making the plane.

That makes him the most popular bet over the last 48 hours, ahead of the likes of England staples Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Raheem Sterling.

He’s 6/1 worst price and 12/1 best price to make Gareth Southgate’s squad, putting him behind the likes of direct rivals at right back in; Kyle Walker, Kieran Trippier and teammates Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

Oddschecker spokesperson George Elek said: “Whilst it is no surprise that Clyne's price has shortened on the back of this news, the form of both Gomez and Alexander-Arnold will make it difficult to force his way into Klopp's first-team.

“Let alone muscling in-front of the impressive duo for national team duty. However, it has not put off punters from betting him, with the pacey right-back being the most popular bet through Oddschecker by quite some distance.
