Tom Huddlestone and Ben Alnwick have been named in Stuart Pearce's England Under-21 squad for the friendly against Romania next week.

Pearce has selected 21 players in naming his first squad since being appointed full-time coach of the Under-21s for the friendly at Bristol City's Ashton Gate on Tuesday (August 21, 7.45pm).

Midfielder Tom will be looking to add to his 18 caps at this level while Ben will battle it out with Manchester City's Joe Hart for the goalkeeper's jersey now that Scott Carson - who earned a record 29 caps for the Under-21s - is too old.

Meanwhile, Robbie Keane has been named in the Republic of Ireland squad for the friendly against Denmark next Wednesday (August 22).
