What fantastic news coming there is coming from the Football Association today with Danny Ings called up to play for England at under-21 level.

He's been named in what is Gareth Southgate's first squad since the former Middlesbrough manager replaced Stuart Pearce. He's in the squad for two games in the European qualifiers. The first is against San Marino, which will be played before returning to England to face Lithuania at Ipswich's Portman Road.

The first game will be played on Thursday 10th October at Stadio Olimpico in Serravalle, with the second game on Tuesday 15th, just four days before Burnley play at Portman Road in the Championship.

Ings joins Richard Chaplow and Jay Rodriguez in winning call ups for this level for England while a Burnley player. It's richly deserved and I'm sure everyone will join me in offering congratulations to him.

The full squad is: Jonathan Bond (Watford), Jack Buttland (Barnsley, loan from Stoke), George Long (Sheffield United), Eric Dier (Sporting Lisbon), Carl Jenkinson (Arsenal), Michael Keane (Man United), Jack Robinson (Blackpool, loan from Liverpool), Luke Shaw (Southampton), John Stones (Everton), Tom Carroll (QPR, loan from Tottenham), Nathaniel Chalobah (Nottm Forest, loan from Chelsea), Will Hughes (Derby), Ravel Morrison (West Ham), James Ward-Prowse (Southampton), Sammy Ameobi (Newcastle), Tom Ince (Blackpool), Jesse Lingard (Birmingham, loan from Man United), Nathan Redmond (Norwich), Raheem Sterling (Liverpool), Wilfried Zaha (Man United), Saido Berahinho (West Brom), Harry Kane (Tottenham), Danny Ings (Burnley), Nick Powell (Wigan, loan from Man United).
