Tottenham starlet Rose eyes U21 final chance

Tottenham midfielder Danny Rose believes he has a big chance of seeing action for England in tonight's U21 European Championship final.

"Out of the five games so far and obviously apart from the group game against Germany, this is probably the one I'm most likely to feature in because we've lost Fraizer and Gabby," Rose told the Spurs website.

"If we need a goal in the game or another attacking option, we haven't those strikers to call upon, so hopefully I'll be in a good position to get involved."

Rose said the squad will take positives from the group game where Pearce rested a number of players yet England dominated, despite going behind early.

"We can't get complacent but we drew with them in the group stages when we didn't field our strongest team," he reasoned.

"We played very well that night and we started with the likes of myself and Jack Rodwell, both 18, and some of the lads hadn't played for a few weeks because the Championship ended earlier in May.

"We can't just think now that we've got the likes of Theo Walcott, James Milner, Mark Noble to come in we'll walk all over them, but it's certainly something in our favour.

"Germany are a good team with talented players but we outplayed them that night and we can be confident.

"As I said before, we don't fear anyone and we all believe we can win."
