United Defender Earns First England Call-Up For International Friendly

Manchester United's 20-year-old defender Chris Smalling has received his first national call-up for England... Smalling has been included by Fabio Capello in the 22-man squad to face France in a friendly game on Wednesday...

Other notable inclusions included Newcastle United's Andy Carroll & Sunderland midfielder Jordan Henderson...

Smalling was signed from Fulham this summer for a reported fee of around £10 million... For a player who was playing in the third tier of English football for Maidstone until 20 months ago & not considered good enough for the Fulham starting XI, Smalling has taken giant strides since joining United...

United stalwart Rio Ferdinand will wear the captain's armband against Les Blues & even though Smalling may not feature during the game, he surely will in what looks to be a bright future for him ahead...

Well done Chris & best of luck for the times ahead!

That's all Folks!

Yours,
CJ
