Aaron capped a fine first season at Spurs by joining team-mates Michael, Jermaine Jenas and Paul Robinson in Sven Goran ErikssonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 23-man squad for Germany.
Michael pointed out the similarities between AaronÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s first senior call and his own back in May 2001 when he made his England debut as a substitute for David Beckham in a 4-0 friendly win against Mexico.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a magnificent achievement for someone so young,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Michael. Ã¢â‚¬Å“Things have happened so quickly for him and I was pretty much in the same boat as Aaron when I was his age.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“I had my first season at West Ham and then got into the squad when I was 19 as well.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“It wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t the World Cup though and to get into the World Cup squad at that age is unbelievable. He must be pinching himself at the minute.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“HeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s been fantastic for us especially in the latter stages of the season and IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m sure he can handle the whole situation.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Michael Carrick can relate to Aaron Lennon's world being turned upside down following his call up to England's World Cup squad.
