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."

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.

ood grief. Someone guessed that the form English player at the moment might be in his national side with some other players? And that's espionage? Now if they discovered that Emile Heskey was going to be in the starting line up.... at right back.... THAT would be espionage. Give it a rest Roy.
