Jack Colback Replaces Steven Gerrard In England Squad
Jack Colback is a surprise call-up for England after his move from Sunderland to a big club…the Newcastle midfielder and Villa’s Fabian Delph replacing the retiring Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard.
Roy Hodgson has given Colback his chance, alongside other senior squad new boys Calum Chambers (Arsenal), Fabian Delph (Villa) and Danny Rose (Spurs).
England face Norway at Wembley next Wednesday in a friendly before kicking off their Euro 2016 campaign against Switzerland on foreign soil, with that match taking place in Basel.
Ex-Newcastle players Fraser Forster and James Milner both keep their places after being part of the squad this summer in Brazil.
Colback has been arguably Newcastle’s best player in the opening two Premier League matches and fans will be hoping he returns against Palace after missing Tuesday night’s match at Gillingham through injury.
