England manager Steve McClaren has finally called David Bentley (and others!) up to an England squad, albeit an England B squad for the upcoming friendly with Albania.
The friendly, which takes place on May 25th, is at, of ALL places Burnley's Turf Moor. What a place for Bentley to make his "senior" England bow!
After being overlooked repeatedly when others (not just Rovers fans!) had been backing him to be given this chance Bentley, along with Joleon Lescott (Everton), Nicky Shorey (Reading) and Phil Jagielka (Sheffield United) have been called into an England squad for the first time.
David Nugent retains his place in the set-up after a goalscoring debut for the A team (I pity the fool! Oh, not Mr T's A Team…) and Michael Owen returns but others however have still been overlooked in a squad that contains MANY regular faces with the likes of Matthew Taylor, Leighton Baines and Kevin Nolan again left out, although some, maybe all may be injured or returning from injury?
Here is the Squad:
Goalkeepers: Paul Robinson (Tottenham), Ben Foster (Manchester United, on loan at Watford)
Defenders: Phil Neville (Everton), Joleon Lescott (Everton), Michael Dawson (Tottenham), Ledley King (Tottenham), Gareth Barry (Aston Villa), Nicky Shorey (Reading)
Midfielders: Owen Hargreaves (Bayern Munich), Phil Jagielka (Sheffield United), Aaron Lennon (Tottenham), Kieron Dyer (Newcastle), Scott Parker (Newcastle), Jermaine Jenas (Tottenham), Stewart Downing (Middlesbrough), David Bentley (Blackburn)
Forwards: Michael Owen (Newcastle), Jermain Defoe (Tottenham), Alan Smith (Manchester United), David Nugent (Preston)
Maybe Stephen Warnock will feel he had a shot at this squad, but you can't argue with Phil Neville's inclusion, what a colossus he is… but alas we can't be greedy, as at least Bents has FINALLY been given that call he's been waiting for all season.
