Walker wins England under-19 call

Sheffield United defender Kyle Walker has been named in the England under-19 squad for the forthcoming European elite qualifiers.

England will play Bosnia-Hercegovina, Slovakia and Scotland between 27 May and 1 June, with the final match to be staged at the Blades' Bramall Lane.

Walker, 18, has ended the season impressively, starting the last three games for the Blades.

And he is hoping to keep his place for the play-off final against Burnley.

Walker is a product of the Blades academy and has been with the club since the age of seven.

He signed professional terms with United in the summer of 2008 and, after a loan spell with Northampton at the start of the season, he made his first senior appearance in the FA Cup win over Leyton Orient in January.
