Steele lands England call
Former Peterborough goalkeeper Luke Steele is celebrating a call up to the England Under-18 squad - just a week after completing a dream move to Manchester United.

The 17-year-old has been named in the youth party heading for the four-team round-robin friendly tournament in Lisbon, which runs from 3-10 June.

Aside from host nation Portugal, England will also face Slovakia and Norway.

Highly-rated Steele admitted receiving the letter informing him of his selection was a strange experience - as he could not adjust to being called a Manchester United player.

"It was a bit of a weird feeling when I looked at the letter and saw my name next to United as I had got used to looking for Peterborough," he explained.

But Steele insists he is fully prepared should he be called into action for the Under-18 team.

"I have been training with goalkeeping coach Tony Godden and first-team keeper Mark Tyler at London Road throughout May to maintain my fitness," he told Peterborough's official website.

"I don't think it will have any affect on whether they pick me or not but at least I will be ready and fit if I do get the nod."

The ex-Posh shot-stopper moved to Old Trafford in a 500,000 switch after a successful two-month loan spell at the Premiership giants towards the end of the 2001-02 campaign.

He made his England debut as a second-half substitute for the Under-18's against Italy earlier this year.
