Swansea City midfielder Jonjo Shelvey earns England call-up

30th August 2015

Swansea City midfielder Jonjo Shelvey has been called up by England for their Euro 2016 qualifiers against San Marino and Switzerland.
The 23-year-old could become the first Swansea City player to represent the English senior side while playing for the club.
Shelvey, who was included in Roy Hodgson's squad last October but failed to feature, hopes to earn his second cap as England look to secure qualification in their games with San Marino and Switzerland.
His inclusion comes on the day he played 90 minutes as the Swans beat Manchester United 2-1 at the Liberty.
Shelvey is among 16 Swans to have earned international call-ups.

Ashley Williams and Neil Taylor are part of the Wales squad for the Group B matches with Cyprus and Israel as Chris Coleman's side target Euro 2016 qualification.
Gylfi Sigurdsson is among the Iceland squad for the fixtures against Holland and Kazakhstan while Eder features for Portugal as they take on France and Albania.
Keepers Lukasz Fabianski and Kristoffer Nordfeldt have got call-ups for Poland and Sweden while Ki Sung-Yueng and Andre Ayew will be in action for South Korea and Ghana.
Jefferson Montero, meanwhile, has pulled out of Ecuador's squad after missing Sunday's home clash with United with a thigh injury.
On the Under-21 circuit, Josh Sheehan, Ryan Hedges and Owain Jones are part of Wales' squad while Jay Fulton and Gregor Zabret feature for Scotland and Slovenia.
Meanwhile, Connor Quigley and Stephen Fallon have been included in Northern Ireland's under-19s training camp in Manchester.
