Holding and Chambers make the England squad for this summer’s U21 Championships 0

Arsenal’s defensive duo Rob Holding and Calum Chambers have both been called up by England manager Aidy Bothroyd for the U21 Championships in Poland. The full list of names can be read here.

Holding, signed from Bolton for £2m last summer, spent a large part of his debut season out of the Arsenal first-team but was recalled successfully with a series of impressive performances before the campaign came to a close.

The 21-year-old, who has made five appearances for the England U21 team, ended up making nine Premier League starts for the Gunners, winning seven, drawing one and losing one. His form late-season even led to him signing a new deal at the club.

Could a successful U21 European Championships propel Arsenal’s Calum Chambers into starting eleven next season? 0

Arsenal defender Calum Chambers is expected to play a key role in the England backline ahead of this summer’s U21 European Championships, and should he sign for the Three Lions, he could well force his way into the Arsenal starting lineup on a regular basis.

The 20-year-old was given plenty of game time immediately after joining the Gunners due to an extended rest given to Per Mertesacker following his World Cup winning exploits that summer, but hardly featured in the second-half of the campaign, as the side started to pick itself on form.
