Former Danum schoolboy Danny Rose is one of four uncapped players that has today been named in Roy Hodgson’s England squad.

Tottenham’s Rose, 24, has been selected for the nation’s upcoming games against Norway and Switzerland.

Having impressed for Spurs this term, Rose will now join a new-look 22-man squad which includes fellow full England team debutants in Jack Colback, of Newcastle United, Arsenal’s Calum Chambers and Aston Villa’s Fabian Delph.

England face Norway in a friendly at Wembley on Wednesday before they take a trip to Basle and kick-off their Euro 2016 qualifier against Switzerland on September 8.

Midfielder Rose, who played for Barnby Dun Colts in the Free Press Junior Sunday League before joining Leeds United on schoolboy forms at the age of 12, has spent time with Peterborough United, Watford, Bristol City and Sunderland after penning terms with Spurs in 2007.

He has been capped at England U21s level and also featured in Team GB’s side during London’s 2012 Olympic Games.
