Bent called up for England

Darren Bent has been called up to the full England squad for the Euro 2008 qualifiers against Croatia and Macedonia after an injury to former Palace striker Andrew ('Don't call me Andy') Johnson.

'Andy's [sic] out of the games against Macedonia and Croatia with a hamstring injury which he picked up in the last minute against Manchester City on Saturday,' England coach Steve McClaren told wire services.

'We're fortunate that we are able to call Darren up from the under-21's. He's already got experience of been [sic] involved in several senior squads and he's a player with excellent ability and a real goal threat.'

Also he comes with his own cushion for bench warming duties.
