England Under-21 boss Stuart Pearce has called up Gabriel Agbonlahor for the friendly against Romania at Ashton Gate next Tuesday.

Aston Villa forward Agbonlahor, 20, missed this summer´s European Championship in Holland after the Football Association could not contact him.

Villa boss Martin O´Neill initially took the blame for a breakdown in communications and Pearce - who led England´s youngsters to the semi-finals and has been appointed full-time boss - travelled to see the striker to discuss his international future.
