Barry International Start (17 Nov)
Villa's 17 year old defensive sensation Gareth Barry will start his first England game tonight after a callup to the U21 squad.

England coach Peter Taylor confirmed he would be starting, after impressing all season with Villa and in the England training sessions.  Barry was set to play for the U18's however his brilliant form caused intervention from Glenn Hoddle to have him promoted to U21 duty.

The full squad is Simonsen (Everton), Dyer (Ipswich), Ball (Everton), Curtis (Manchester United), Brown (Manchester United), Barry (Aston Villa), Carragher (Liverpool), Lampard (West Ham, capt), Morris (Chelsea), Davies (Blackburn), Cort (Wimbledon).
