Downes, who has made 11 appearances for the Blues so far in 2017/18 after emerging during pre-season, has been called up for the clashes with Bulgaria, Iceland and the Faroe Islands.

There is no place for Downes’ Ipswich Town midfield partner Tristan Nydam, though, for the trip which will see all three clashes played in Bulgaria.
