Steve McClaren has called up five of our players for the start of England's European Championship qualifying campaign.

Michael Dawson keeps hold of his place in the squad and is joined by Paul Robinson, Jermaine Jenas, Aaron Lennon and Jermain Defoe for the Group E games against Andorra and Macedonia.

We take on Andorra at Old Trafford on Saturday September 2 (5pm) before travelling to Skopje, Macedonia, on Wednesday September 6 (8pm).

All five were in McClaren's first squad as England manager for the friendly against Greece on August 16 when goalkeeper Paul and Jermain Defoe started and Aaron came on as substitute in a 4-0 win.
