Sunderland boss Roy Keane is hoping for more of his academy graduates to begin attracting England recognition.
Keane said: "There were nine English lads involved in our game against Newcastle at the weekend and that was nice to see.
"We've got a couple of lads away with England and that's fantastic, we would love some to be playing with the England senior team.
"We've got 11 or 12 players away on international duty and I love that. It's great for Sunderland."
