BBC Sport - Stewart Downing enjoying life at West Ham and England

Downing enjoying new lease of life

England midfielder Stewart Downing says he is "enjoying" his football at the moment and says he is "over the moon" to be selected for the squad to play Slovenia and Scotland.

The former Liverpool player has not featured for the Three Lions since May 2012 but a change of position and a good run of form for West Ham bought him to manager Roy Hodgson's attention.

England face Slovenia in a Euro 2016 Group E qualifier on Saturday and then play Scotland in a friendly on Tuesday.
