He will be in the England squad that will play their Euro 2016 qualifiers against San Marino October 9 at Wembley and travel to Estonia on 12 October. Also, called up was Jonjo Shelvey who has been impressive for Swansea this season. However, England have only selected three strikers in their squad with their main man Daniel Sturridge still recovering from injury,
