Jenkinson set to be rewarded for superb start with shock England call up
11:01 GMT, 28 September 2012
Carl Jenkinson could be in line for a surprise England call up with Roy Hodgson having trouble in the right-back department.
Glen Johnson is suspended for England's game against San Marino and Martin Kelly is injured for the season.
Kyle Walker is likely to be Hodgson's first choice but Jenkinson could slot in as reserve.
Impressive: Carl Jenkinson has surprised a few this season
The Arsenal defender has shocked many with his strong performances as part of a tight defence during the start of the season.
Jenkinson is also eligible to play for Finland and Hodgson may strike to prevent him being picked up by them.
Jenkinson cost Arsenal 1million in the summer of 2011 and Arsene Wenger expects he will become an important player for that national team.
Quickly: Roy Hodgson could seal Jenkinson's international future
He said: 'I believe Jenkinson will have an impact here and you will fight for him not to play for Finland.'
Jenkinson has played for Finland at U21 level and Hodgson could use this moment to strike before it's too late.
