Walker, Lennon and Defoe in England calls!

Roy Hodgson has recalled Aaron Lennon to the England squad to face San Marino and Poland in the next round of World Cup qualifiers.

Yesterday we saw, Steven Caulker, Adam Smith, Danny Rose and a first call for Andros Townsend for the U-21s and their play-off double headed against Serbia, and we would have expected harry Kane to boost the Spurs number, should he have not been injured.
