Bentley gets under-21 call

Published Add your comment

David Bentley has been included in the England Under-21 squad for the European Championship finals in Holland.

The Blackburn winger is currently with the seniors and will travel to Estonia next week for the Euro 2008 qualifier before joining the under-21s, with their matches starting on June 11.

Bentley, who scored the first goal for England at the new Wembley when he netted for the under-21s against Italy, has played more than 30 games for his club this season and boss Mark Hughes recently warned against burn-out.
