Hodgson brings in new U21 faces
Roy Hodgson has included nine uncapped players in his England Under-21 squad to face Scotland at Bramall Lane on Tuesday.
With the post of Under-21 head coach still vacant following the exit of Stuart Pearce in the wake of a dismal European Championship performance this summer, England boss Hodgson has taken on the role in addition to seniors duty against the Scots next week.
And he has gone for a new-look squad, which includes only three players - Jack Butland, Connor Wickham and Jonjo Shelvey - who have more than 10 caps.
That trio are among only seven survivors from the Euro 2013 debacle in Israel.
The new faces Hodgson has chosen for next week include Manchester United midfielder Jesse Lingard, who excelled on the club's pre-season tour of Australia and the Far East.
Lingard is joined by club colleagues Sam Johnstone and Tom Thorpe, while highly-rated Everton defender John Stones is also involved, as is 18-year-old Southampton man Luke Shaw.
Eric Dier is another interesting choice, having emerged through Sporting Lisbon's academy after his parents moved to Portugal from their native Cheltenham when he was 10.
Liverpool's Raheem Sterling is selected too, despite speculation he would be handed a senior call-up by Hodgson.
Jonathan Bond (Watford), Jack Butland (Stoke), Sam Johnstone (Manchester United), George Long (Sheffield United), Eric Dier (Sporting Lisbon), Todd Kane (Chelsea), Michael Keane (Manchester United), Jack Robinson (Liverpool), Luke Shaw (Southampton), John Stones (Everton), Tom Thorpe (Manchester United), Andre Wisdom (Liverpool), Ross Barkley (Everton), Nathaniel Chalobah (Chelsea), Tom Carroll (Tottenham), Will Hughes (Derby), Jesse Lingard (Manchester United), Jonjo Shelvey (Swansea), Sammy Ameobi (Newcastle), Saido Berahino (West Brom), Thomas Ince (Blackpool), Harry Kane (Tottenham), Nathan Redmond (Norwich), Raheem Sterling (Liverpool), Connor Wickham (Sunderland).
