Jake ready for competitive international bow

by Matthew Harris on September 10, 2012

Our own Jake Livermore continues to build on the best 12 months of his career and following on from his full England debut last month, Jake has been called into Roy Hodgson’s squad to face Ukraine tomorrow night.

With Theo Walcott and Adam Johnson returning to their clubs after injury, there was a need for reinforcements in midfield and although the best that he can hope for is a subs place, it’s further recognition of Livermore’s progress.

Surprisingly, Jake had no experience of representative football at under 21 level or anything else for that matter before he earned his first full cap as Frank Lampard’s replacement against Italy last month.

While it seems unlikely that he will add to his appearances tomorrow, it’s further evidence that the player is firmly on Roy’s radar as the country moves forward.
