Tottenham's Rose has designs on England call-up

Danny Rose is targeting a place in Roy Hodgson's next England squad despite missing an invitation to a team meeting in February.

The Tottenham left-back almost missed out on last month's gathering at St George's Park because the FA had the wrong phone number for him.

Rose said: "I changed my phone number last year, and the lads were talking about the meeting and I didn't know anything about it.

"The day before, the people from FA texted me and asked me if I was coming, and I was like 'what meeting?'

"It was a big shock for me. For other players it might have just been a meeting, but for me it was a lot more. It shows I am maybe in the plans.

"I was over the moon to be included and I think I'm in their plans, at least a little bit. Even if it is a small part, it was a big bonus.

"I'm 25 now and not made an appearance yet for my country, but that's the aim for everybody. Hopefully I can keep playing well until the next time England meet."
