Joleon Lescott could be back on the international stage in San Marino.
Joleon Lescott will not let England down if called upon by Roy Hodgson for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Montenegro.
The Manchester City centre-back has been something of a spare part at the Etihad Stadium this season under boss Roberto Mancini.
But Lescott is now in line for his 25th cap after Hodgson was forced to draft in the defender following a number of injuries and pull-outs.
Rio Ferdinand, Gary Cahill, Michael Dawson and Phil Jagielka will all miss the clash with San Marino, with Steven Caulker, Chris Smalling, Steven Taylor and Lescott the options at Hodgson's disposal.
And the 30-year-old will be more than up to the task, despite a lack of first-team starts at City this term, according to his club team-mate James Milner.
Milner, who will also be looking to get the nod against San Marino, insists: "Joleon hasn't played a load of games for City this year, but when he had done, he has played well.
"Joleon has played a lot of games for England and is a top player. He is full of confidence and ready to go. He will be ready for Friday."
England's only previous trip to San Marino, in November 1993, saw them concede a goal within the first few seconds, before going on to register a 7-1 victory.
This time around, England are 1.02 to score first and 5.50 to win by a 5-0 margin, with Wayne Rooney 4.00 to score a three goals or more in the game.
