David Beckham has been left out of England manager Fabio Capello´s first squad but Aston Villa striker Gabriel Agbonlahor has been included.

Capello has told Beckham - who was hoping to win his 100th cap - that he only wants players who are match-fit.

Apart from Agbonlahor the other new face in the 30-man provisional squad to face Switzerland in a friendly international at Wembley on Wednesday is Villa team-mate Curtis Davis - currently on loan from West Brom.
