Ravel Morrison gets another opportunity to show what he can do on a big stage on Tuesday when he runs out for England Under-21s.
New coach Gareth Southgate is excited about seeing the youngster in action against Lithuania at Portman Road and he looks almost certain to start after Liverpool's Raheem Sterling was called into Roy Hodgson's senior squad.
Morrison made his debut at Under-21 level in the 4-0 win over San Marino last week and Southgate is hoping he can produce the goods again tonight.
"Well, he's a different type of player to the others that we've got here. He's capable of things that are very, very different, there's no question about that, and it's exciting to watch," Southgate said.
"We're a squad with lots of exciting players and I don't want to heap all of that focus on to one. I want him to be able to go on the field and express himself."
