Southampton fans react on Twitter to Nathaniel Clyne's England call-up

Clyne Tackles Gervinho

The Saints right-back has been called up by Roy Hodgson once again.

Southampton right-back Nathaniel Clyne has once again been called up by England boss Roy Hodgson for the upcoming Three Lions games against Slovenia (a Euro 2016 qualifier) and Scotland (a friendly).

The 23-year-old has been in sensational form with Ronald Koeman's side so far this season, who currently sit second in the Premier League.

Clyne's call-up, then, comes as no surprise to those who have been keeping an eye on him over the campaign, perhaps even picking him themselves for their Fantasy Football team...

As Opta stats show, only Mile Jedinak, who plays for Clyne's former side Crystal Palace, has won more tackles than Clyne in the Premier League, while the 23-year-old has also won 17 interceptions and made 27 clearances.

An ever-present for the Saints, Clyne has also threatened going forward, creating five chances and landing four accurate crosses. The right-back has also scored once in the league and once in the Capital One Cup for Southampton.

Naturally, Clyne was delighted to have been called up to the England squad once again.

But will the defender actually get some game-time on this occasion? Southampton fans certainly hope so, as their reaction on Twitter seems to suggest.

There appears to be a general consensus that Clyne is a better right-back at the moment than Liverpool defender Glen Johnson. So can he get a deserved England cap, then?
