Cattermole Named in England Euro Squad

Cattermole Named in England Euro Squad


Wigan Athletic midfield man Lee Cattermole has been named in the England under 21 squad that will jet off for the European Championships in Sweden that start on June 15th

Cattermole has had a superb season at the heart of the Latics midfield and he proved to be a bargain buy costing just £3 million from Middlesbrough last July, he has already skippered the Latics when club captain Mario Melchiot has missed games and he is destined to pick up the arm band on a permanent basis once Melchiot steps aside.

The last Under 21 European Championships featured Leighton Baines from the Latics set up and they were unlucky to lose on penalties to the Netherlands in the semi-finals who featured current Latics player Daniel DeRidder.

England are in group B of the 8 team tournament and face Spain, Finland and then Germany in the group stages with both the group winners and runners-up going through to the semi-finals

Group A consists of hosts Sweden, Belarus, Italy and Serbia, the final will take place in Malmo on June 29th

England boss Stuart Pearce is confident that his side can go one better this time and make the final and with the squad full of Premier League stars like Lee Cattermole and with Theo Walcott, Micah Richards, Kieran Gibbs, James Milner, Mark Noble and Gabriel Agbonlahor in there they have every chance

Pearce said: 'I have every confidence in this squad, we are really looking forward to competing with the best under-21 teams in Europe, and hopefully, doing our country proud with our performances. It should be a fantastic tournament.'

The full England Under-21 squad for the European Championships in Sweden:

Joe Hart (Manchester City), Joe Lewis (Peterborough), Scott Loach (Watford); Martin Cranie (Portsmouth), Kieran Gibbs (Arsenal), Michael Mancienne (Chelsea), Nedum Onuoha (Manchester City), Micah Richards (Manchester City), Andrew Taylor (Middlesbrough), Steven Taylor (Newcastle), James Tomkins (West Ham); Lee Cattermole (Wigan), Andrew Driver (Hearts) Craig Gardner (Aston Villa), Adam Johnson (Middlesbrough), James Milner (Aston Villa), Fabrice Muamba (Bolton), Mark Noble (West Ham), Jack Rodwell (Everton); Theo Walcott (Arsenal), Gabriel Agbonlahor (Aston Villa), Frazier Campbell (Manchester United), Danny Welbeck (Manchester United).
