From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Stewart Downing, (born July 22, 1984), is an English football player, whose performances at the start of the 2004-2005 season for Middlesbrough F.C., had seen calls in the British media for him to be called up to the England squad, primarily as a solution for the team's problems on the left side of midfield.

He made his England debut on the February 9, 2005 in a home friendly, played at Villa Park against the Netherlands, replacing Shaun Wright-Phillips in the second half.

Earlier on in his career, he was sent out on loan to Sunderland A.F.C. in 2003, as at the time his first-team chances were limited due to the form on the left of Boro's midfield of Bolo Zenden. After his recall due to injuries at Middlesbrough, he found his chances for first-team appearances had increased, and his career started to take off.

As the 2005/06 season started Downing found himself ignored by the England management and his career took a further setback in September 2005 when he was injured training for the England U21 squad and looked likely to be out of the game for several months.
