Arsenal face a club v country row over Theo Walcott.
England U21 boss Stuart Pearce believes he will want to be part of the squad should they reach the European Championship finals.
Pearce said: "I know Theo and he will want to come and play for me if we qualify. He has played a big part in getting us this far.
"The experience would benefit him and might just tip the scales in us winning the tournament."
