Manchester United forward Jesse Lingard has been called into the England squad ahead of Tuesday's game against France.

The 22-year-old will join up with the squad on Sunday to help bolster Roy Hodgson's ranks after two players were forced out through injury.

Lingard's Old Trafford team-mate Michael Carrick was carried off in the last minute of England's 2-0 defeat to Spain on Friday.

Carrick has returned to his club and will not be available for England's final game of the year.

Meanwhile Jamie Vardy, who sat out the game in Alicante with a knock sustained in Leicester's Barclays Premier League encounter with Watford last weekend, will also miss Tuesday's match with the French.

England returned from Spain on Saturday and, following the tragic events in Paris on Friday night, it was decided that the meeting with France would go ahead.

As planned, Hodgson's squad dispersed for 24 hours shortly after landing on home soil and will regroup at their Hertfordshire base on Sunday evening.

It will be Lingard's first time with the senior squad, though the former Birmingham and Brighton loanee has made 11 appearances for the under-21s.

He made his debut at under-21 level as a substitute against Scotland when Hodgson took charge of the team in August 2013.
