It’s taken enough time but England boss Fabio Capello has finally wiped his glasses clean and realised the talent that Matt Jarvis can bring to the England team.
The 24-year-old has been on stand-by on a number of occasions for Capello over the past year, but he has never made the announced squad until now.
Jarvis will be included in the squad to take on Wales on Saturday in the Euro 2012 qualifying match.
Of course, just because he has been included in the 26-man squad, it doesn’t mean he is guaranteed to win his first England cap.
However if he does he would become the first Wolves player to represent England since Steve Bull in October 1990 (prepare to here that stat A LOT over the next week).
England squad: Ben Foster (Birmingham), Robert Green (West Ham), Joe Hart (Man City), Leighton Baines (Everton), Gary Cahill (Bolton), Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Michael Dawson (Tottenham), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Glen Johnson (Liverpool), Joleon Lescott (Man City), John Terry (Chelsea, capt), Kyle Walker (Aston Villa), Gareth Barry (Man City), Stewart Downing (Aston Villa), Matt Jarvis (Wolves), Frank Lampard (Chelsea), Aaron Lennon (Tottenham), James Milner (Man City), Scott Parker (West Ham), Ashley Young (Aston Villa), Jack Wilshere (Arsenal), Darren Bent (Aston Villa), Andy Carroll (Liverpool), Peter Crouch (Tottenham), Jermain Defoe (Tottenham), Wayne Rooney (Man Utd).
