Danny Ings is set to make his England debut Monday against Lithuania after recovering from an ankle injury, according to the Mail. The injury kept him out of Friday's win over Estonia. He'll reportedly make the bench for Roy Hodgson's side, and figures to get some playing time in the second half.

Ings is a developing cult hero at Anfield, where his energy and eye for goal have made him an instant hit for Liverpool. But to this point, Ings' international career has been limited to 13 U21 appearances. With a regular place in Liverpool's squad rotation he should see increasing amounts of time with England's first team in the future.

Ings' injury recovery is also good news for new Reds manager Jürgen Klopp, who will have the striker available to him in training this week after he returns from international duty. Ings has many of the skills that Klopp covets, and it'll be interesting to see how he's utilized in the coming months.
