West Brom striker called up to England squad

West Brom striker Saido Berahino has earned his first England call up after an impressive start to the Premier League season

Berahino, who is only 21 has scored 8 goals in 13 games in the Premier League making him England’s top goal scorer in the Premier League so far.

Following the announcement England manager Roy Hodgson said “The reasons are quite obvious, not only because he’s done so well for his club but for the Under-21s team too,”  

“He’s been in good form and he has been in our mind since the last get-together. The Under-21s only have a friendly so I saw no reason not to bring him in now.

“There is no point bringing these players in if they don’t have a chance to play. He will hope to but he faces competition from the other strikers too.”
