Jack Robinson Promoted to U21s for Euro Trip

Shaun Botterill

Less than two weeks ahead of England's opening match against Italy, Jack Robinson finds himself among a number of new faces introduced into Stuart Pearce's U21 squad.

The U21 Euros give us the first chance to watch some semi-meaningful action over the summer, followed by the Confederations Cup and the U20 World Cup later in the month. All three tournaments will give us the opportunity to follow a mixture of first-team regulars and younger talent, with a number of names littered through squads taking part in each competition.

I'm most looking forward to the U21s, who'll likely have Jordan Henderson and Jonjo Shelvey as regular fixtures with Andre Wisdom included in some capacity as well. And now, with a constellation of off-field incidents and injuries forcing Stuart Pearce to ring in a handful of last-minute changes, we could also see Jack Robinson get some time, as Luke Shaw withdrew from contention on the same day that Andros Townsend ruled himself out because of an alleged violation of the FA's betting policies.

This doesn't necessarily mean that Robinson will come straight into the eleven; as talented and promising as Shaw is, Danny Rose has been a mainstay at left-back and is likely to continue to do so throughout the competition. Whether or not it's simply for cover, it's a boost for a player who had a solid loan spell with Wolves over the second half of the season and will look to get himself into contention ahead of next season under Brendan Rodgers.
