Heaton replaces Hart in England squad


England have called up Burnley goalkeeper Tom Heaton to their squad to face Germany and Netherlands after injuries forced the withdrawals of Manchester City duo Joe Hart and Raheem Sterling.

The Football Association confirmed they would not be calling up an outfield player to replace Sterling "at this stage" ahead of the game on March 26 in Berlin, which is followed by a home game against Netherlands three days later. 

Burnley captain Heaton, 29, is still waiting for his first international cap having been an unused substitute for England on eight occasions.
