Martin Kelly was called into the England squad for UEFA EURO 2012 as a replacement for defender Gary Cahill, who fractured his jaw in a warm-up match against Belgium, nine days before their first game in Ukraine. A scorer on his Under-21 debut against Uzbekistan in August 2010, the Liverpool FC player can operate on the right and in the centre of the back four.
• A graduate of the Liverpool academy, Kelly missed almost two years of his youth development due to a back problem.
• His first appearance and start for his local club came in the UEFA Champions League − he made his debut as a late substitute in a 3-1 win at PSV Eindhoven in December 2008 and his first start on matchday three of the 2009/10 competition against Olympique Lyonnais.
• Scored his first professional goal while on loan at Huddersfield Town FC in the English third tier − during a 3-2 defeat of Walsall FC − on 18 April 2009.
• Cemented his place as Liverpool's regular right-back in 2010/11 with a series of promising displays under Roy Hodgson and Kenny Dalglish, with the Reds unbeaten in the ten UEFA Europa League matches he appeared in.
• Earned his first senior cap as a late substitute in a friendly against Norway in Oslo on 26 May 2012.
