Craig Gardner has told the official site he is looking forward to playing for England U21’s tonight in the Uefa Championship qualifier against the Republic of Ireland.

The Villa midfielder said: ‘I love playing for my country – it’s a real honour to be selected. We’re doing well in the qualifiers and a victory tonight would really help our chances of making it to the Euro play-offs. We are so close to clinching a play-off place after winning five and drawing one of our last six games. The key to international recognition though is performing for Villa when I play. That’s my goal.’

Villa striker Luke Moore is also in the squad.
