Man City Rodwell called up into England squad

Man City Rodwell called up into England squad

Manchester City defensive midfielder Jack Rodwell has been called up into England squad by national team manager Roy Hodgson for the friendly games against Republic of Ireland on the 29th of May and Brazil on the 2nd of June.

The 22-year-old player has made two appearances in England national shirt – both in friendly games, but has not won any call up since November 2011 due to lack of first-team football.

Rodwell who joined Man City from Everton for £12 million in 2012, scoring his debut goal in the Citizens’ eyebrow-raising 3-2 defeat at the hands of Norwich on Sunday.

Rodwell was forced to miss the large part of the season through a series of hamstring injuries, which limited him to just 15 first-team starts.

Here is England squad:

Goalkeepers: Ben Foster, Joe Hart, Alex McCarthy.

Defenders: Leighton Baines, Gary Cahill, Ashley Cole, Phil Jagielka, Glen Johnson, Phil Jones, Joleon Lescott, Kyle Walker.

Midfielders: Michael Carrick, Tom Cleverley, Frank Lampard, James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Theo Walcott, Jack Rodwell.

Forwards: Andy Carroll, Jermain Defoe, Wayne Rooney, Daniel Sturridge, Danny Welbeck.
