Nouble called by England

Frank Nouble has been called up by England for a three-day training camp ahead of the 2010 UEFA European Under-19 Championship later this summer.

The 18-year-old striker has travelled to Warwick University in the Midlands with the rest of the 21-man squad, with Noel Blake set to test his players' form and fitness ahead of the finals in northern France between 18 and 30 July.

A final squad of 18 will be submitted to UEFA next week, with the players due to meet again at Warwick University for more training before making the trip across the Channel on 15 July. England will be based in Caen and will take on Austria, Netherlands and France in their group-stage fixtures on 18, 21 and 24 July respectively.

Nouble played a full part in qualifying, helping the Young Lions see off Ukraine, Republic of Ireland and Bosnia-Herzegovina.

He finished the club season on loan at Swindon Town, having had a spell at West Bromwich Albion prior to that following a successful start to his career at the Boleyn Ground that saw him make his senior debut and play eight Premier League games.
