Anton's Delight

Anton Ferdinand was delighted to have been called up for England U21s to face Ukraine - once he realised it was for real.

Along with Nigel Reo-Coker, Anton was given the nod, and he says:

"I am very pleased and just happy that I am in the squad; it is a buzz for me and my family.

"When the woman from the FA rang me and told me I thought it was a wind-up but I went home and saw it on Sky Sports.

"I was over the moon but I was also 'thinking is she for real?'

"It won't really sink in until I am there - but if I get the chance now I have to take it with both hands."
