Villa Midfielder Earns England Call

Villa Midfielder Earns England Call

James Milner has been called up to the full England side from the Under-21`s following injury to Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick.

Various media sources are suggesting that Carrick has suffered a foot injury and joins a long list of absentees from the England squad ahead of the World Cup qualifiers against world football powerhouses Kazakhstan and Andorra.

Milner, 23, holds the record for number of Under-21 caps with a whopping 48 appearances however has not managed a full cap as of yet despite being called up by current boss Fabio Capello in February`s friendly defeat at the hands of European Champions Spain.

The former Newcastle midfielder joins Gareth Barry, Ashley Young and the mighty Emile Heskey for the trip to Almaty.

I doubt Carrick would play anyway, GB has that role stitched up . More chance of me playing than Milner but great he's made the squad

Milner is a top player with pace and spirit and Villa are lucky to have him on board. He will be an international, But personally I think he is not ready for that yet... and Martin should keep him close rather than let any diversions creep in.

Poor Heskey can't get any love, even when he gets in international call-up. Sigh.

No Wonder he holds the "record for number of Under-21 caps with a whopping 48 appearances" if he is still playing for the U21's at 23!!! Or Am I missing something?
