    Despite all the striker injuries, it's fair to say that's a bit of news I was not expecting to hear!

    Wow! As a Saints fan i'm not to happy about him playing for England 3 days before the season starts but as a Lambert fan fair play to the lad, it's a bit Roy of the Rovers for him and nice to see there is still a bit of romance in football.

    Doubt he'll break through and stay in once the injuries clear, but he DESERVES this recognition

    Well Done!

    Let's put it this way, I turned off SSN after the League Cup draw.

    Congratulations to him, it only took injuries to the entire England attack, him completely losing form, Grant Holt signing for a Championship side and a friendly against a footballing third world nation for him to get the call.

    great news but i guess it's highly likely he'll be as invovled as Lallana was before.

    Congrats (but please don't get injured!).

  22. Default

    Very pleased. (And very proud).

    I'm sure I saw Roy interviewed talking about Grant Holt & Rickie, saying that they aren't of the desired quality.

    Anyone else remember that? - I think it was from when Rickie & Holt were on Goals on Sunday.

    Brilliant, well deserved. Great to see a hard working and honest professional getting the recognition he deserves.

    Well done Rickie. I hope he gets onto the pitch at some point.

    There's no official announcement yet (or at least i can't see it on BBC)... hope we haven't jumped the gun and upset Woy and the FA!

    I thought Rooney was "injured"....

    Well and truly deserved, proper chuffed for him. Hope he gets decent playing time and shines. Gives me a reason to watch England, which is also nice!

    First time I've wanted to watch an international friendly for years - well done SRL.

    I'm so pleased for Rickie, the ultimate "never give up" story. How many of us would have thought of this when we signed him 4 years ago.

    Weird how we (well, I do anyway) sort of feel proud of Rickie. Yet, I've never known him or met him.

    Very well done to Mr. Lambert!

    We certainly broke the news first, I think the Club were a minute early.....I'm sure the FA wont mind.

    Disagree, Lallana was called up as a late replacement due to a load of injuries and it was a competitive game so only 3 of the subs could actually get on the pitch. As this is a friendly, Hodgson will be able to use 6 (I think) from the bench, and despite being named in the squad I'd fully expect Rooney to drop out.

    Great News for him, really great story rising from the bottom league and now into the England squad at his age!

    Hope it's not just like AL's involvement. He deserves some game time. Don't see what they learn from playing Defoe, Rooney will probably be injured or off trying to force his move! Hopefully at least 30 mins anyway. I don't like to see new players given 2 or 3 minutes then left out the new squad, seems pointless.

    I know many will say he's too old etc., but there's a world cup next summer, that's the only important thing, and Rickie will be a good age and playing in a top league, so why not?

    IF he plays I might have to get an england shirt with his name and whatever number he wears on it, just to mark this unexpected, magical occasion

    Fair play to Mr Hodgson for selecting Rickie with the sole purpose to unite the Saints Web Forum...
