Howson late England call up

Leeds United midfielder Jon Howson has been drafted into the England Under-21s squad.

The 22-year-old, who made his debut in Italy last month, will join up with Stuart Pearce's team when they return to England from Thursday's friendly in Denmark, which is live on FATV at 5pm.

The Three Lions travelled with one change to their squad, as defender Ben Mee dropped out through injury.

The Leicester City loanee will return to the Walkers Stadium having picked up a knock in training yesterday.

His departure though, means a recall to the Under-21s for Howson and although he won't travel to Viborg, he will link up with the squad before their meeting with Iceland in Preston on Monday 28 March (7.45pm ko).
