Ross Barkley: Training with England

Everton star Ross Barkley has set his sights on winning plenty of England caps having been called up to the senior squad for the first time.

The highly-rated 19-year-old has impressed in the Toffees' first three matches of the season and his form has been recognised by Roy Hodgson who selected him for Friday's World Cup qualifier at home to Moldova.

"When the gaffer (Roberto Martinez) told me I was over the moon," said the teenager.

"It was the best feeling ever. To get called up to your country's senior side, there is nothing better that can happen.

"I think it will be a good experience being around top-class players like Phil Jagielka and Frank Lampard and learning from them all."

Barkley added on evertontv: "I'm humble about it and hopefully I do get a cap - and then plenty more in the future.

"It's been a positive start to the season and I'm hoping to push on and do better as the season goes on."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
