Rohan Ricketts' fine start to the season has been rewarded with a call to the England U21 squad - one of 13 players called up for international duty this week.

Midfielder Rohan joins goalkeeper Rob Burch in David Platt's U21 squad for the Euro 2004 qualifier in Turkey on Friday night.

We've four other players on U21 duty. Jon Blondel faces Estonia for Belgium, Mark Hughes travels to Greece with Northern Ireland, Steve Kelly goes to Switzerland with Ireland and Helder Postiga is in Portugal for a friendly against Slovakia.

Steve Carr, Gary Doherty and Robbie Keane join assistant manager Chris Hughton for Ireland's vital Euro 2004 qualifier in Switzerland.

Goran Bunjevcevic is in the Serbia & Montenegro squad taking on Simon Davies' Wales at the Millennium Stadium - unfortunately Simon is out through injury - and Milenko Acimovic faces Cyprus at home for Slovenia.

Finally, there are a couple of friendlies with Mbulelo Mabizela back in South Africa against Costa Rica and Lars Hirschfeld travelling to Finland with Canada.
