International Football - Wilshere set for England call

Arsenal's teenage midfielder Jack Wilshere could be in line for a senior England call-up after being left out of Stuart Pearce's U21 squad.
England play Hungary at Wembley next Wednesday, 24 hours after the U21s tackle Uzbekistan in a friendly at Bristol City's Ashton Gate.
Fabio Capello vowed to make changes to his squad after England's World Cup debacle - and including Wilshere for the Hungary game would certainly be a pointer to the future.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger highlighted Wilshere's international credentials after the 18-year-old produced a man-of-the-match performance against Celtic last Sunday.
Newcastle's latest recruit Dan Gosling is absent from the U21s through injury, although Everton's highly-rated midfielder Jack Rodwell - who has been tipped for senior honours in the near future - has been retained in a 19-man squad.
