Chelsea youngster set for England call-up

If you believe the rumours today then the answer is yes. Chelsea youngster Michael Mancienne, currently on-loan at Wolves, is being tipped as the surprise name in Fabio Capello’s squad to face Germany in Berlin next week.

The 20-year-old is being tipped by The Sun for a call-up after reportedly impressing FabCap with his performances for Wolves and England Under 21s. He has yet to feature for Chelsea’s first team.

David James and David Beckham are expected to be left in the cold as Capello runs the rule over his youthful prospects, including Joe Hart and Gabriel Agbonlahor.
