Andros Townsend: FA charge leads to England U21 withdrawal

A statement on the FA website said Townsend, who ended last season on loan with QPR, "has been charged with breaches of Rule E8 (b) in relation to a number of betting offences."

It is against FA regulations for players to bet on matches in competitions they are involved in.

Townsend has until June 3 to respond to the charges, and he has withdrawn from England's squad for the U21 European Championship next month, with his place going to Birmingham's Nathan Redmond.

A separate statement from the FA said: "Townsend will receive the full support of the FA and Tottenham Hotspur FC in seeking rehabilitation whilst responding to the allegations."

Stuart Pearce has also called Liverpool full-back Jack Robinson into his squad for the tournament in Israel after Southampton's Luke Shaw pulled out.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
