Carl Jenkinson was certainly considered for the most recent England squad according to manager Roy Hodgson.

The 20-year old Arsenal defender has been impressive in the early stages of the campaign whilst deputising for the injured Bacary Sagna and Hodgson suggests he was not far away from making the 25-man squad for upcoming World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Poland.
