Norwich City’s Todd Cantwell has been called up to the England U21 squad as they prepare for UEFA European Championship group stage in the international break.

The attacking midfielder has been superb for the Canaries this season, but he was only named on standby for Aidy Boothroyd’s squad.
However, the Championship club confirmed this afternoon that the 23-year-old had been drafted in after Manchester United’s Mason Greenwood pulled out through injury.
Most fans are delighted for Cantwell to receive international recognition, particularly as this is a tournament, with the knockout stages set to be played in the summer.
Can you name the club’s top goalscorer from the last 13 seasons?
Yet, some are concerned that this will put the club in a difficult position as England’s final group game against Croatia is set to be played on March 31st, with the Canaries set to play Preston at Deepdale just two days later.
Here we look at some of the reaction to Cantwell’s call-up from Twitter…
Great for him, but awful for us v Preston https://t.co/ShCuA6d4yN
