England STILL wait for clearance on Arsenal’s Jenkinson

I may have jumped the gun a bit yesterday by having a go at Roy Hodgson for not including the young Arsenal right back, Carl Jenkinson, in his England squad to face Sweden in a friendly next week. His name was not included in the squad list released by the FA, but will be included, apparently, as long as he finally receives his clearance from FIFA, Hodgson explained.

“The reason I didn’t include Carl from the start is because we haven’t got clearance from FIFA.

“But we do believe they are going to grant that so by next Wednesday he will be clear to play.
