Michael Carrick and Frank Lampard named in experimental England squad for Italy friendly

 

Roy Hodgson has made wholesale changes to his England
squad for next week's friendly with Italy - with John Terry among the
senior players left out and Michael Carrick returning to the fold.

The Manchester United midfielder told the Football Association he did not want to be selected for Euro 2012.

However, he has now made himself available and comes into a squad that sees Tottenham duo Steven Caulker and Jake Livermore selected for the first time, in addition to Chelsea's Ryan Bertrand.

England captain Steven Gerrard, plus established regulars Wayne Rooney and Ashley Cole, were left out of the squad for Wednesday's match in Berne but Frank Lampard - who missed Euro 2012 through injury - has been included.

Hodgson has retained just three players who started the Euro 2012 quarter-final defeat to Italy in Kiev; Manchester City duo Joe Hart and James Milner, plus Ashley Young, who missed in the shoot-out defeat.

Other than Hart, Lampard looks the most likely skipper.

Goalkeepers John Ruddy and Jack Butland are the other uncapped members of Hodgson's squad, in addition to Tom Cleverley, who would have made his debut 12 months ago had the friendly with Holland not been postponed due to the London riots.

The England squad meet in Watford on Sunday evening, although Butland will be released back to Birmingham on Tuesday as they have a League Cup tie against Barnet.

In total, 10 of the players who went to Euro 2012 have been picked, while five members of Stuart Pearce's Olympics squad are also involved.

Micah Richards and Phil Jones are among the group not considered due to injury.

ENGLAND SQUAD TO PLAY ITALY:

Goalkeepers: Jack Butland (Birmingham City), Joe Hart (Manchester City), John Ruddy (Norwich City).
 

Defenders: Leighton Baines (Everton), Ryan Bertrand (Chelsea), Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Steven Caulker (Tottenham Hotspur), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Kyle Walker (Tottenham Hotspur).
 

Midfielders: Michael Carrick (Manchester United), Tom Cleverley (Manchester United), Frank Lampard (Chelsea), Adam Johnson (Manchester City), Jake Livermore (Tottenham Hotspur), James Milner (Manchester City), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal), Jack Rodwell (Everton), Ashley Young (Manchester United).

Forwards: Andy Carroll (Liverpool), Jermain Defoe (Tottenham Hotspur), Daniel Sturridge (Chelsea), Theo Walcott (Arsenal).
