Stuart Pearce has announced his England squad for next week’s game against Holland, and rightfully there is a large Manchester United contingent.

Whilst Pearce would have liked to be able to call upon Paul Scholes, the midfielder is not a part of the team and neither are Rio Ferdinand or Michael Carrick quite surprisingly.

Many of United’s younger stars have been included though, with another call up for Tom Cleverley who will hope to make his debut this time around having missed out due to the riots in London last August.

There was also a place for former United striker Frazier Campbell, who has impressed since returning from a serious knee injury at Sunderland.

GK: Scott Carson, Joe Hart, Robert Green

Defenders: Gary Cahill, Ashley Cole, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Micah Richards, Kyle Walker, Leighton Baines, Glen Johnson

Midfielders: Gareth Barry, Tom Cleverley, Stewart Downing, Adam Johnson, Steven Gerrard, James Milner, Ashley Young, Theo Walcott, Scott Parker

Strikers: Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck, Daniel Sturridge, Frazier Campbell, Darren Bent
