England U21 coach Stuart Pearce is delighted to have Danny Rose available for today's clash with Norway.

Tottenham fullback Rose was outstanding on-loan at Sunderland last season.

“He has been arguably Sunderland’s best player this year and probably one of the Under-21s best players,” said Pearce.

“He’s developing well. If he has another solid season next year, he will be fighting to get into Tottenham’s team. As soon as you do that, you are in England senior contention. This is his third tournament, which is fantastic for him in terms of experience. He has 25 caps and possesses the tools to step up into the seniors.”
