Fulham full back Liam Rosenior has been called up to England’s under 21 squad for the first time.

The young defender could make his international bow against Germany and Azerbaijan in matches later this month after breaking into the first team at Craven Cottage this season.

A delighted Rosenior told Fulham’s official website:

“It’s a great honour for me.  still can’t really believe it’s going to happen. I’ve just been happy playing for Fulham, but if I’m producing the goods for them on the pitch, then you hope other things will follow and now it looks like they’re going to.”
