England squad to face Chile & Germany

Roy Hodgson's England squad for the upcoming international friendlies against Chile and Germany doesn't include many surprises, but there was a shock call up for Southampton pair Jay Rodriguez and Adam Lallana.

As expected, all of the tried and tested heads have made the cut, with the likes of Ashley Cole, Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard and Wayne Rooney all included in a squad that compliments reliability with the exuberance of the in-form figures such as Andros Townsend, Lallana and Jordan Henderson. 

Those hopeful of a large number of youngsters getting a look in after an impressive couple of months from starlets in the Premier League will be left disappointed, as Ravel Morrison, Saido Berahino and Luke Shaw all failed to make the grade this time around.

Fraser Forster and John Ruddy will compete for the No.1 spot with the out-of-form Joe Hart, but it's likely that the former will be the only real competition.

The full squad list reads as follows:

Goalkeepers: Fraser Forster, Joe Hart, John Ruddy

Defenders: Leighton Baines, Gary Cahill, Ashley Cole, Kieran Gibbs, Phil Jagielka, Glen Johnson, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Kyle Walker

Midfielders: Ross Barkley, Michael Carrick, Tom Cleverley, Steven Gerrard, Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana, Frank Lampard, James Milner, Andros Townsend, Jack Wilshere

Forwards: Jermain Defoe, Rickie Lambert, Jay Rodriguez, Wayne Rooney, Daniel Sturridge, Daniel Welbeck
