Nathan Delfouneso: Called up in place of Callum McManaman

The Aston Villa forward, who has scored four goals in 16 outings for Stuart Pearce's side, comes in to the 23-man party after Wigan winger McManaman was ruled out with an ankle injury.

The 22-year-old featured in both Under-21 matches in March, scoring in the 3-0 victory over Romania at Wycombe.

Delfouneso was also in Pearce's squad for Euro 2011 in Denmark, while two years earlier he was a valuable member of the U19s side that reached the European Championship Final, finishing the tournament with the golden boot.

Pearce said: "Nathan was very unfortunate not to make the squad in the first place. He has contributed a great deal to the Under-21s in qualification and he was unlucky that Callum McManaman's form was such that he had forced his way into the reckoning late on."

England will kick-off this year's finals against Italy in Tel Aviv on 5 June.

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
