Good luck to James Milner, Gabby Agbonlahor and Craig Gardner who should all feature for the England under-21s in the European Championship which starts today.
The trio hopefully will be in the starting line up in their opening game tonight against Finland (Örjans Vall, Halmstad at 5.15pm). The match is on Sky Sports and Sky Sports HD.
Watch out also for England v Spain on Thursday and England v the old enemy Germany on June 22 with the top two teams qualifying.

James Milner is gunning for England to win this tournament after losing out in the semi's last time in a 13-12 penalty shoot out with Holland.
Milner said: 'The same faces have been here a while now and I've been involved in three campaigns. In the first, we lost in the quarters to France and in the second we lost on penalties in the semis. Hopefully we can make it another step this time. We've only conceded one goal in the group and that was a penalty. It's a great testament to the squad. We're confident of not conceding goals, and there aren't going to be too many games where we don't score a goal.'
The Villa winger has the record number of caps (42) for the U21's.
