Congratulations to Chris Smalling who has been called up to the England squad for the first time. After impressing for the U-21, Smalling is one of the eight defenders that Fabio Capello has named in his squad for a friendly against France on Wednesday.

Two years ago he was playing for the Isthmian League side Maidstone United.

Well done Chris.
