Were you one of those Spurs fans who criticized Roy Hodgson for not calling up Ryan Mason into his recently-named 23-man England squad? You can start celebrating now! Mason today was named to Hodgson's team as a late replacement. Spurs made the announcement via Twitter and their website.

This makes five Hotspurs in the England side as Mason joins Harry Kane, Kyle Walker, Andros Townsend, and Danny Rose. Mason was tapped after Adam Lallana withdrew due to injury. Mason has represented England at the U16, U19, and U20 levels; this is his first call-up to the England senior team.
England takes on Lithuania in a Euro 2016 qualifier at Wembley on Friday, and then travels to Italy to play a friendly against the Azzuri in Turin on Tuesday, March 31.
