With injuries forcing the withdrawal of left-back Kieran Gibbs and possibly midfielder Frank Lampard, there are some notable new faces on Hodgson's latest squad.
Chelsea left-back Ryan Bertrand earned another call-up, having already made two substitute appearances since Euro 2012, while Liverpool midfielder Jonjo Shelvey has earned his first place among the senior squad. So to has Fraser Forster, the Celtic goalkeeper.
Other players which raised eyebrows include Stoke defender Ryan Shawcross—who gets his first call-up since his tackle broke Aaron Ramsey's leg in February 2010—and winger Aaron Lennon, who is joining the squad for the first time since the 2010 World Cup.
