Striker Danny Welbeck has been called into the England squad for the first time following the withdrawal of Aaron Lennon.
The Football Association confirmed on Monday night that Lennon had been released back to Tottenham as a precaution after he experienced discomfort in his hamstring at the end of a training session ahead of the friendly with Ghana.
Initially it was suggested there would be no replacement. However, coach Fabio Capello has now changed his mind and drafted Welbeck, a Manchester United player currently on loan at Sunderland, into the squad.
