John Terry has been included in the England squad for their World Cup Qualifying double-header next week.

Manager Roy Hodgson named a 24-man Three Lions squad to face Moldova on Friday September 7, before welcoming Ukraine to Wembley on Tuesday September 11.

The Chelsea captain has been struggling with a back injury and missed the Blues victory over Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge on Saturday, but looks to have recovered in time.

Andy Carroll is given a recall, despite his future at Liverpool being highly uncertain and recent playing time being very limited.

Wayne Rooney’s injury means a place for young Chelsea forward Daniel Sturridge, while his Blues team-mate Ryan Bertrand could make his first competitive international appearance.

The full squad:

Goalkeepers: Jack Butland (Birmingham City), Joe Hart (Manchester City), John Ruddy (Norwich City).

Defenders: Leighton Baines (Everton), Ryan Bertrand (Chelsea), Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Glen Johnson (Liverpool), Joleon Lescott (Manchester City), John Terry (Chelsea), Kyle Walker (Tottenham Hotspur).

Midfielders: Michael Carrick (Manchester United), Tom Cleverley (Manchester United), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal), Steven Gerrard (Liverpool), Adam Johnson (Sunderland), Frank Lampard (Chelsea), James Milner (Manchester City), Theo Walcott (Arsenal).

Forwards: Andy Carroll (Liverpool), Jermain Defoe (Tottenham Hotspur), Daniel Sturridge (Chelsea), Danny Welbeck (Manchester United).
