Rovers youngsters Phil Jones and Frankie Fielding have been named in the provisional squad for the England Under 21’s summer tilt at the European Championships – held this time in Denmark.

Both would expect to be in the final squad if fit as Fielding and Loach have been mainstays for Pearce in between the sticks recent times and Jones has been tipped for an appearance in the full England squad in due course.

The squad in full is as follows –

Defenders:Joe Bennett (Middlesbrough), Ryan Bertrand (Chelsea), Kieran Gibbs (Arsenal), Phil Jones (Blackburn Rovers), Michael Mancienne (Wolverhampton Wanderers – loan from Chelsea), Ben Mee (Leicester City – loan from Manchester City), Kyle Naughton (Leicester City – loan from Tottenham), Micah Richards (Manchester City), Chris Smalling (Manchester United), James Tomkins (West Ham United), Kieran Trippier (Barnsley – loan from Manchester City), Kyle Walker (Aston Villa – loan from Tottenham Hotspur).

Midfielders: Marc Albrighton (Aston Villa), Jack Cork (Burnley – loan from Chelsea), Tom Cleverley (Wigan Athletic – loan from Man Utd), Mark Davies (Bolton Wanderers), Adam Hammill (Wolverhampton Wanderers), Jordan Henderson (Sunderland), Jonathan Howson (Leeds United), Adam Lallana (Southampton), Henri Lansbury (Norwich City – loan from Arsenal), Josh McEachran (Chelsea), Fabrice Muamba (Bolton Wanderers), Jack Rodwell (Everton), Danny Rose (Tottenham Hotspur), Scott Sinclair (Swansea City), Jack Wilshere (Arsenal).

Forwards: Andy Carroll (Liverpool), Nathan Delfouneso (Burnley – loan from Aston Villa), Gary Hooper (Celtic), Jay Rodriguez (Burnley), Freddie Sears (West Ham United), Daniel Sturridge (Bolton Wanderers – loan from Chelsea), James Vaughan (Crystal Palace – loan from Everton), Danny Welbeck (Sunderland – loan from Man Utd), Connor Wickham (Ipswich Town).

  • I didn’t realise you guys had such a strong 21’s squad. GW- Fielding. BACK 4- Gibbs, Jones, Smalling, Richards. MIDFIELD- Albrighton, Rodwell, Henderson, Wilshere. STRIKERS- Carroll, Sturidge. I would be glad to see any of these line up for rovers. England to win the european championships. £50 win

  • Brilliant to see both in the squad. I wonder how long will Fielding wait to get his chance with Rovers. Don’t get me wrong – Robbo has had a really good season and I want him to stay, but I don’t want to lose a potentially great ‘keeper for the future. Remember Shay Given anyone? Not sure of how to balance the two, especially when we’ve got Mark Bunn as well. Something will have to give eventually.

  • Fielding already linked with £400k move to Derby and that is likely to happen unfortunately. Goalies dnt get the same opportunities as outfield players and he will see a move as his best option especially with Robbo being in the form of his life
