Injury rules Lowe out of England under 21 clash

BLACKBURN’S Jason Lowe has pulled out of the England under 21 squad with a hamstring injury.

Lowe, who came on for the final few minutes of Blackburn’s weekend draw with Birmingham, was due to link up with the rest of the squad at his home training facilities of Brockhall yesterday.

Stuart Pearce and his side are using Rovers’ training ground as a base ahead of their friendly with Northern Ireland at Blackpool’s Bloomfield Road ground tonight (7.45pm).

Lowe was joined on the injured list by Newcastle striker Sammy Ameobi, with Pearce calling up Sheffield United defender Harry Maguire and Leicester forward Martyn Waghorn as replacements.

Pearce has also seen Wilfried Zaha drafted into the senior squad following the withdrawals of Wayne Rooney, Theo Walcott, Jonjo Shelvey, Kyle Walker and Aaron Lennon from the squad who travel to Sweden for a friendly tomorrow.

England boss Roy Hodgson looked to call up Jermain Defoe but the Spurs man is also injured while Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is not match fit.

Along with Zaha, Hodgson also called up Arsenal defender Carl Jenkinson and Spurs midfielder Tom Huddlestone.

The under-21 game will be England’s first against Northern Ireland at that level and begins their preparation for next summer’s European Championship in Israel.

The Young Lions reached the finals after winning their qualifying group before beating Serbia over a two-legged play-off last month.

Good to see Henning Berg has learnt something from his days with Sir Alex.

Nice to see that the England team (albeit the U21s) are using the Rovers facilities at Brockhall. Good boost to the staff down there I am sure. Seems the whole atmosphere around the Rovers is brightening-up at last.

I like the idea of Shebby wandering over to Stuart Pearce to give him some of that global advice, he'll wake up in Queens Park with a headache and an Adidas boot up his ar5e.

I don't know the reason for your hate for Shebby Singh. Since his arrival things have improved at rovers, no more Steve Kean, players in like Rhodes,Murphy, Etuhu etc. Berg as new manager. I wish he was sent earlier to change things at rovers as a certain person controlled everything at rovers before and we were going downhill. Good luck to Shebby in his mission to get rovers back to prmiership,

MOH might not be far off the mark with this Greenscreener.....on reflection certainly some things have changed for the better at Ewood...heck we even have a sponsor for the Riverside now! They (Shebby or whoever) still need to introduce some cheaper ticket deals for the rest of the season to get a few more thou to come back to Ewood though.

My opinion of Shebby Singh is based on his embarrassing self promotion agenda. He is a legend in his own mind, a two bob player who worked his way into the sports media by conning people in the far east who know so little about football that they believed his special brand of bull. Sadly the Venkys were so desperate for new advisors that they have been taken in by him too.

If you want to give him credit for sacking Kean fine, but seeing him as the problem wasn't exactly rocket science was it. Although technically Kean walked and took them all by surprise so not exacly that well engineered either was it ?.

If you want to give him credit for hiring Berg fine, IMO he's looking like a good appointment and has my support, but then again compared to Kean, who wouldn't be. It would also have been nice if Singh hadn't felt the need to try to assert his authority over Berg with the statements about promotion.

I fail to see how moh wants to credit Shebby with the summer signings, good or bad, surely they were Keans signing ?

Bottom line, the guy is a charletan, like Kean, can't believe his luck and simply knows more about football than Venkys. if he's any sense he will shut his hole and let Berg steer the ship. Somehow I doubt he will.

agree with some of that GS - except that yes, Kean did walk - but it was Shebby and co that pushed him forcibly towards the door with the clear lack of public support and the famous '3 games and he's out' statement.

Also Kean had nothing to do with the Rhodes signing, which was probbaly the best bit of business we did. I agree that SS is a dubious character, comic-like almost, but not sure that he is a charlaton like Kean was? I think we have to give him time to do whatever he does, as right now it seems the boat is steady, so why rock it again now?

I agree, it was £25 on Sat for unreserved seating.
