Roy Hodgson has named four uncapped players, including Arsenal’s Calum Chambers, in a youthful England squad for the forthcoming fixtures against Norway and Switzerland.
I spoke to someone who knows him well and he called him the ginger Pirlo and it would be nice if he turned out like that.I was impressed with him last year and he has an awful lot to offer. He is a very talented player. Suddenly we have lost Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and Michael Carrick. Jack plays in a position where vacancies can quickly arise and we will see how he gets on.
Chambers jumps over the Under-21s but with 10 injuries and six of them in the defensive part of the field I didn't have the luxury of saying he could start in the Under-21s.
