PALACE boss Neil Warnock hopes to see Eagles academy graduate Nathaniel Clyne make his full England debut during the international break.
The right-back received his first senior call-up and has been training with the Three Lions ahead of their Euro 2016 qualifier against Slovenia on Saturday.
And Warnock, who managed the Croydon-born man in his previous spell as boss at Selhurst Park, believes Clyne will keep his place in the squad for the foreseeable future.
"I am thoroughly delighted for him," he said of the Southampton full-back.
"When Nathaniel gets a cap I will be so chuffed and he'll keep his kit.
"Once England see how good he is, he'll keep his place. He was a great lad when I was last at Palace.
"He is probably one of the best defenders I've ever seen."
