LONDON: Fabio Capello has selected Manchester United youngsters Phil Jones, Tom Cleverley and Chris Smalling in his England squad for next month's Euro 2012 qualifiers. Jones, 19, is called up for the first time after a superb start to his United career following a transfer from Blackburn, while midfielder Cleverley, 22, gets the nod again after being brought in as a late addition to the squad for last month's postponed friendly against Holland. Smalling, 21, was an unused substitute for a friendly against France last season and still awaits his international debut. England travel to Bulgaria on September 2 before hosting Wales at Wembley four days later.
