Danny earns U21 call-up

Danny Rose has been called into the England Under-21 squad for this summer's European Championships in Sweden.

He and Wolves defender Richard Stearman have been drafted into Stuart Pearce's 23-man party after the withdrawals of Newcastle's Steven Taylor and Manchester United's Danny Welbeck.

Our 18-year-old midfielder has just experienced an injury-hit season but returned in March before heading out on loan to Watford, where he made seven appearances for the Championship side.

Although yet to make his senior debut for us, he featured in our First Team squad for the Premier League match at Everton on May 9, and was an unused substitute.

It is Danny's first international call-up at the Under-21 age group, having represented his country at Under-17 and, most recently, England Under-19 level.

The Championships begin on Monday June 15, when the Young Lions kick off their campaign against Finland. Spain and Germany make up the rest of Group B.

Before this, Danny has a chance to make his mark when the Under-21s take on Azerbaijan in a friendly at Milton Keynes next Monday (June 8).

On Monday night, he played 90 minutes as the Under-19s secured their place at the European Championships with a 2-1 Elite Qualifying Round win over Scotland at Bramall Lane.

Fellow Spurs youngster Dean Parrett came off the bench for the second half, while winger Andros Townsend was an unused substitute.
