Manchester United star set for U21s as Allardyce rolls the dice
It is expected that Sam Allardyce will make several changes to the England squad that finished the Euros. One face definitely missing will be James Milner who has retired from international duty"
But Allardyce looks set to drop others like Jack Wilshire and possibly Daniel Sturridge .
The gaps could leave room for the likes of Jermain Defoe. I know he would love to come - because he's already told me!" said Allardyce.
One man who could be given their first international call-up is West Ham's Mark Noble.
Sam Allardyce managed the midfielder in his time at Upton Park and has previously claimed Noble was deserving of an opportunity with England.
Leicester City's Danny Drinkwater is another who has done himself no harm with a top class performance against Swansea this weekend.
Despite impressing in a number of cameo appearances during England's ill-fated Euro 2016 campaign, Marcus Rashford is set for the Under 21s despite a last gasp winner for Manchester United at Hull.
One thing is certain- Allardyce is his own man - and the squad to face Slovakia on September 4th will not be the same that faced them only 3 months ago in France.
