Pair Receive U21 Calls
Rodwell and Barkley called up for Under-21 action next month.
Jack Rodwell and Ross Barkley have been named in the England Under-21 squad for a qualifying double-header next month.
Stuart Pearce's side face away games in Iceland (6 October) and Norway (11 October) as they aim to qualify for the 2013 European Championships.
Rodwell is an Under-21s mainstay and captained the side in a friendly against Israel earlier this season.
Barkley earned his first cap at this level in that game and could make a competitive bow this time around.
England won their first qualifier of this campaign 6-0 against Azerbaijan.
