PAUL SCHOLES is set to be offered a place in England’s Euro 2012 squad.

International manager-in-waiting Harry Redknapp reckons the Manchester United veteran Paul Scholes is still world class at 37.

Redknapp confirmed he was a huge fan of Scholes, who picked up the last of his 66 caps for England at Euro 2004.

Insisting age should be no barrier at international level, Redkknapp added: “Look at Scholes. Let’s be honest, you’d love to have him in the Euros this year. He’d be in your team, he’s that good.

“He plays like the Spaniards, like Xavi, or Iniesta – he does not give the ball away.”

Who could argue with Harry on this one. The veteran Man United midfielder has returned from retirement and looks like he has never been away. The 37 year old has put in some solid performances to help get the Old Trafford side’s title push back on track and he would surely warrant at the very least a spot in the England Euro 2012 squad, if not a place in the starting eleven to boot.

Paul Scholes retired from England duty eight years ago and would surely be tempted by a return to the international fold ahead of a major tournament.
