Pearce last week named Hughes in his squad for Tuesday night's friendly against Sweden at Walsall's Banks's Stadium.

The 17-year-old Rams playmaker became the second youngest player after Theo Walcott to represent the Young Lions when he made his debut as a substitute against Northern Ireland in November.

Pearce said: "Will Hughes is a real talent in the Championship and he's exciting to watch.

"We have to make sure he doesn't play too many games as he's still young but he's worthy of his place in that Derby team as he makes them tick."

h Daniel. I could spend hours on this subject putting the world to rights. You can even take a step back and ask why football fans (and society in general) have this need to know that something will happen before it actually does. There are times this important, when it comes to things like war, food production and natural disasters. A man you've never met changing his job? Not so much.
