Mark Noble has been named in the England squad to face Wales in the decisive 2009 European Under-21 Championship play-off on 10 and 14 October.
The two-legged tie will be played at Ninian Park, Cardiff and Villa Park, Birmingham, with only the winners progressing to the eight-nation Euro to be staged in Sweden next summer. Noble played a key role in qualification and his participation was never in doubt. Jack Collison had already been named in the Wales squad and is fully fit again after a knee injury.
England manger Stuart Pearce said: "I think there are one or two of the players who would not be out of place in the senior side. Fabio Capello is aware how important these two games are for the Under-21s to get to the finals next year so he has tried to make sure I have the strongest possible squad to choose from."
