Roy Hodgson has called Steven Caulker into the England squad to face San Marino and Montenegro, in place of Rio Ferdinand.
21 year old Steven, was initially selected for the Under 21 games, however, with the confirmation that Ferdinand has withdrawn from the squad, Caulker was selected and is in contention with Gary Cahill, Chris Smalling and Joleon Lescott for a starting place and though I would assume that Caulker will probably have to be content with a squad place for these games, I honestly don't see any real difference between his ability and the other three. Cahill and Lescott have far greater experience at this time, which perhaps gives them the edge. However with neither Lescott or Smalling playing every week, Caulker may yet get a start, especially if Roy Hodgson chooses to rotate his players and perhaps keep a few fresh for the must win game against Montenegro, who currently top the qualifying group.
Caulker has had an impressive season so far, playing 26 games so far. Though it would appear that the is being managed sensibly by Andre Villas-Boas, as he continues to learn his trade and will probably drop back down to the Under 21's for this summers European Championships in Israel, as Hodgson may look again at Ferdinand, who has stated he still has England ambitions, and Phil Jagielka or Michael Sawson, who are both currently injured.
Despite the withdrawals of Dawson and Aaron Lennon, Spurs still have Caulker, Jermain Defoe, Scott Parker and Kyle Walker, in the senior squad, whilst Tom Carroll, Danny Rose, Adam Smith and Andros Townsend are all in the U-21s to play friendlies against Romania and Austria...
