No Newcastle United players will be involved at Wembley this evening – in fact, it’s been a while since ANY Magpies got the international call.
Here we take a look at the last NINE Newcastle players to receive an England call up, even two who just missed out on getting a cap.
1. Kieron Dyer
Dyer won 32 caps while at United, winning his first England call up in 1999. When fit, was involved in squads right up to his departure in 2007.

2. Jermaine Jenas
In February 2003 Jenas made his England debut against Australia. It was his first of 14 caps while at NUFC. Only went on to win another eight in his career.
