Rob Gilchrist and Kyle Johnson have been called into the Great Britain squad for this week’s World Cup qualifiers at Israel and Greece.

The duo, who were not originally on stand-by, were summoned following the withdrawal of Ovie Soko and Justin Robinson.

Soko played for Murcia this past weekend, as did Robinson for London. No reason has been given for their absences.

The team left for a four-day camp in Tel Aviv on Sunday with Alberto Lorenzo in interim charge.

GB are 0-2 in their qualifying group.
