Aston Villa defender Mings: Barkley sure to earn England recall

Aston Villa defender Tyrone Mings expects Ross Barkley to force his way into the England squad.

The on-loan Chelsea midfielder, unlike Mings, was overlooked for this week's internationals.

But his teammate insists: "Ross is a fantastic player, you know that, and he's in fantastic form. I was having a conversation with him prior to meeting up with England and he knows that the form he's in at the moment I'm sure will earn him another call-up.

"He's been around the setup before, he knows the manager, he knows he can pick up the phone speak to him and the manager would have spoken to him before the squad was announced.

"Of course, one day I'd love Ross to be called up and for him to be sitting next to me. Long may it continue, the form and success we're showing at Aston Villa will only benefit the English lads that we've got in the squad. There's a few more you can name as well. "
