Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley is hoping to press his Euro 2012 claims in England's friendly with Holland next Wednesday.

It is anticipated interim manager Stuart Pearce will hand a number of inexperienced players their chance when he unveils his squad. That speculation was given credence by confirmation Joleon Lescott will not be involved, even though fellow central defenders John Terry and Phil Jagielka have been ruled out through injury.

Cleverley, still to make his debut despite two call-ups to senior ranks earlier in the season, said: "If I can find some good form from now until the end of the season, I would be more than happy to be involved in the European Championships."
