First published in Sport by

YORK City striker Clayton Donaldson has been named in the final 16-man squad for the England National Game XI's home match with Holland next Wednesday.

Donaldson has previously failed to make the cut for several non-League international matches after being named in provisional 23-strong squads.

Next week's game takes place at Burton Albion's Pirelli Stadium and 12-goal City striker Donaldson will be competing against Stevenage pair George Boyd and Steve Morison, Dagenham's Craig Makail-Smith and Giuseppe Sole, of Woking, for an attacking starting place in Paul Fairclough's side.

Morison has netted nine times this season, Mackail-Smith eight, Boyd seven and Sole six.

Final England squad: Shwan Jalal (Woking), Aaron Lee-Barrett (Weymouth), Adam Yates (Morecambe), Adam Quinn (Halifax), Kieran Charnock (Northwich), Michael Morrison (Cambridge United), Scott Griffiths (Dagenham), Dennis Oli (Grays), Michael Carr (Northwich), Lewis Chalmers (Altrincham), Craig Stanley (Morecambe), Giuseppe Sole (Woking), George Boyd, Steve Morison (both Stevenage), Clayton Donaldson (York City), Craig Mackail-Smith (Dagenham).
