Shock Zaha call-up

Shock Zaha call-up

With a few withdrawals the 'shock' championship call-up to come was for Wilfried Zaha.

The Palace youngster, capped by England at U21 level 5 times, has been called-up from the U21 squad to the senior one so Roy Hodgson can take a closer look at the 20-year-old.

Zaha, on Twitter, had this to say about his call-up: 'wow, everything's happening so fast.'

Clearly players dropping out have led to this call-up, but it makes sense to bring someone in from the U21 set-up as opposed to someone else completely, right?

Topflight clubs have been 'attracted' to him and this call-up could increase the attention to him but, for what it is worth from me, I would suggest that staying with Palace until the end of the season - at least - could be his best move.

a great opportunity to see what he has to offer and also give him a taste of what is to come is he selects England as his international side over Ivory coast. I know his playing wont make this decision final, but it gives him a feel of the team and a chance to speak with the manager and players to feel a part of the set up.
