Luke Young has been drafted into the England squad for this week's Euro 2008 qualifiers.
Charlton defender Luke Young has been drafted into the England squad for the Euro 2008 qualifiers with Israel and Andorra.
Young was omitted from Steve McClaren's original 23-man squad last week, but he has been called up to provide cover in defence.
The former Tottenham man will help fill the void of Gary Neville's absence after he was forced out of the squad with an ankle injury.
McClaren is also sweating over the fitness of Manchester City defender Micah Richards after he picked up a calf injury against Middlesbrough last weekend.
Young is the third player to be called into the squad after Gareth Barry and David Nugent were given late calls into the fold.
