Livermore earns England call-up

Livermore in squad to face Scotland and France next month

ALBION midfielder Jake Livermore has been selected in the England squad to face Scotland and France in June.

The 27-year-old rewrote Albion history books in March when he started England's international friendly against Germany, playing 83 minutes at the Westfalenstadion in Dortmund.

In doing so, Livermore became the first Baggies outfield player to represent the Three Lions for 33 years and the club's first outfield player to start a match for England since Derek Statham in 1983.

Livermore's second Three Lions cap made him Albion’s 46th England international of all time.

He will now get another chance to shine having been selected in Gareth Southgate's 25-man squad next month.

England take on Scotland in a World Cup qualifier in Glasgow on Saturday, June 10 before facing France in a friendly in Paris on Tuesday, June 13.

The international call-up is further recognition for Livermore, who has been in impressive form since his arrival from Hull City in January.

It comes after Baggies duo Darren Fletcher and James Morrison were both named in Scotland's ranks for the encounter, click here.

Elsewhere, Hal Robson-Kanu has been selected in Wales' 26-man squad for a training camp ahead of next month's World Cup qualifier with Serbia.
