Manchester United defender Phil Jones is happy to be joined in the England squad by teammate Chris Smalling and Chelsea striker Danny Sturridge.

All three could see action against Spain on Saturday.

"It is brilliant to see players you have grown up with on an international stage come through to the seniors," said Jones of his former under-21 colleagues.

"They deserve to be in. Their form for their clubs has shown that. Hopefully they get a chance and prove why they should be here."
