Man Utd's Jones hoping fellow youngsters given England chance

Phil Jones is hoping fellow youngsters are given the chance to prove their worth for England this weekend.

The Three Lions host World Champions Spain at Wembley Stadium on Saturday and alongside Manchester United's Jones in the senior squad are the likes of Jack Rodwell, Daniel Sturridge and Danny Welbeck.

Jones is hoping that Fabio Capello can give these guys from the U21 setup an opportunity against the world's best so they can show what they are capable of.

"I think it's brilliant to see players you've grown up with on the international stage come through to senior level," he said.

"It's nice to see the faces again, they deserve to be here, their performances for their clubs have showed that, and hopefully they get the chance so they can go and prove why they should be here."
