Rodwell delighted with England cap

Jack Rodwell is delighted to have been given the chance to play for his country.

The Everton man was given time against Spain and Sweden to stake a claim for a place in the squad.

“It was a dream come true to step on the pitch against Spain [last Saturday]. It was my full debut. If I can stay in and around the squad I’m happy. We’ve had a good bond for a couple of years [the Under-21 players]. All of the lads have welcomed me in the seniors. I know a few of the lads from Everton. As soon as I stepped through the door I have felt really comfortable.”
