Clyne gets England nod

Daily Echo: Nathaniel Clyne Nathaniel Clyne

England Under-21 boss Stuart Pearce today rested several of his big-name players as he looked to the future for his first match since last month's stormy win in Serbia - but has included Nathaniel Clyne.

Tuesday's friendly against Northern Ireland will be see the Young Lions without Raheem Sterling, Steven Caulker and Jonjo Shelvey - who were promoted to the senior squad - while Danny Rose, Jack Butland, Craig Dawson, Henri Lansbury, Nathan Delfouneso and Marvin Sordell were also omitted.

There were maiden call-ups for Manchester United goalkeeper Sam Johnstone, Chelsea defender Nathaniel Chalobah, Leicester defender Liam Moore, Derby midfielder Will Hughes and Bolton's on-loan Arsenal striker Benik Afobe.

There were also recalls for Nathaniel Clyne and Sammy Ameobi for next week's Under-21 Championship warm-up at Blackpool's Bloomfield Road.
