Richards in line for England debut

Micah Richards is set to continue his meteoric rise in the game by becoming England's youngest ever defender after it was confirmed he would start at right-back against Holland in Amsterdam tomorrow evening.

It caps an impressive past year for Richards and the fact that it is by no means a shadow squad put out by Steve McLaren is further testament to him, and should at least make an England worth watching for once.

One interesting aside in the press today was Stuart Pearce praising Richards' agents for the role they played in helping convince Richards to sign the long-term extension to his contract last season.
