Roy Hodgson Includes Clyne and Shelvey In England Squad

Roy Hodgson has named his England squad with Nathaniel Clyne and Jonjo Shelvey among those called-up for the Three Lions.

Aston Villa midfielder Fabian Delph retains his place but Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge is not named in the squad due an injury occured on England duty a number of weeks ago.

Nathaniel Clyne has been in sensational form at right back for Southampton this season while Kieran Gibbs and Jonjo Shelvey are rewarded for their recent good form.

Ronald Koeman has stated that Clyne is the best right back he has worked with in his 15 years of managerial experience.

“In my opinion, Clyne is one of the best right full-backs that I’ve had in my teams during the last 15 years,’ he said.

‘That means a lot because I like to play with offensive right and left full-backs and he has that qualities, he’s fast and gives good crosses.

‘I’m happy but I’m not in the position to tell the national coach of somebody else about him.

‘He shows his quality from the beginning of the season and if he continues like that he will get a call, for sure.

‘If he shows his qualities game by game, then I’m sure he will get finally a call to be a national player.’

Here is the England squad in full:

Fraser Forster (Southampton), Ben Foster (West Bromwich Albion), Joe Hart (Manchester City)

Leighton Baines (Everton), Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Nathaniel Clyne (Southampton), Kieran Gibbs (Arsenal), Phil Jagielka (Everton), John Stones (Everton)
