Clyne in England Under-21 squad

Daily Echo: Nathaniel Clyne Nathaniel Clyne

Saints defender Nathaniel Clyne has been included in the England Under-21 squad for the Euro 2013 play-off double header against Serbia next week.

England will play the first leg of the tie on Friday, October 12, at Norwich, before travelling to Serbia for the second leg four days later.

Manager Stuart Pearce said: “No matter who you face at this stage of the competition, it’s going to be really tough.

“There are 14 nations left in qualifying all going for just seven slots, alongside hosts Israel, at the finals.

“Serbia, like us, were unbeaten on their way to winning their group, so that illustrates just how difficult it is to qualify for this tournament.”

England squad: Ben Amos (Hull City - loan from Manchester United), Jack Butland (Birmingham City), Declan Rudd (Norwich City), Jason Steele (Middlesbrough), Ryan Bennett (Norwich City), Steven Caulker (Tottenham Hotspur), Nathaniel Clyne (Southampton), Craig Dawson (West Bromwich Albion), Tom Lees (Leeds United), Jack Rodwell (Manchester City), Danny Rose (Sunderland - loan from Tottenham Hotspur), Adam Smith (Tottenham Hotspur), Andre Wisdom (Liverpool), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Tom Ince (Blackpool), Henri Lansbury (Nottingham Forest), Jason Lowe (Blackburn Rovers), Josh McEachran (Middlesbrough - loan from Chelsea), Nick Powell (Manchester United), Jonjo Shelvey (Liverpool), Raheem Sterling (Liverpool), Wilfried Zaha (Crystal Palace), Nathan Delfouneso (Blackpool - loan from Aston Villa), Marvin Sordell (Bolton Wanderers), Andros Townsend (Tottenham Hotspur), Connor Wickham (Sunderland).

That lad is solid gold. He's a darn site better than Glen Johnson so lord knows why he's only in the under-21s.

Well done.he has had a baptism of fire so far this season at Saints but has been one of our better defenders.a future full international no doubt but lets hope that he achieves that distinction with the Saints and doesn't have to move on to a top 4 club.lets hope if he stays with Saints in a couple of seasons time we will be a premiership top 4 team.

At least saints players are being recgonised for their efforts this season. I know Clyne isnt from the academy, but the younger players look promising, and its good to have such development.
