Swansea winger Wayne Routledge set to be handed senior England chance
28-year-old could be only un-capped played named in squad
The Swansea City midfielder Wayne Routledge could be the only uncapped player named in Roy Hodgson's England squad for the end-of-season friendlies against the Republic of Ireland and Brazil.
Routledge, 28, has never been in an England squad before but won 12 caps for the Under-21s and played extensively for England at junior level when he was a teenager.
He has also been used in a more central role by manager Michael Laudrup this season, although his more regular position is as a right winger.
Hodgson will announce his squad today with a press conference at the Luton headquarters of the national team's sponsors, Vauxhall.
