Birmingham ’keeper Jack Butland has been released to England Under-21s for their European Championship play-off with Serbia, the first leg of which is at Carrow Road on October 12, leading to Celtic’s Forster becoming a rare England selection from the Scottish Premier League.

With John Terry now retired from international football, Stoke’s Ryan Shawcross has been picked for only the second time, having failed to win a cap when he was chosen for the friendly against Egypt by Fabio Capello in March 2010.

Arsenal’s Kieran Gibbs has replaced another ex-Canary, Ryan Bertrand, in Roy Hodgson’s squad,

England squad: Hart (Manchester City), Ruddy (Norwich), Forster (Celtic); Baines (Everton), Cahill (Chelsea), Cole (Chelsea), Gibbs (Arsenal), Jagielka (Everton), G Johnson (Liverpool), Lescott (Manchester City), Shawcross (Stoke), Walker (Tottenham); Carrick (Manchester United), Cleverley (Manchester United), Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal), Gerrard (Liverpool), A Johnson (Sunderland), Lennon (Tottenham), Lampard (Chelsea), Milner (Manchester City), Walcott (Arsenal); Carroll (West Ham, on loan from Liverpool), Defoe (Tottenham), Rooney (Manchester United), Welbeck (Manchester United).

  • JR "talked up" Big Fraze himself not so long ago. He`ll be hard pressed to keep ahead of FF in the pecking order! Is Turner the Ghost of Gary Doherty?

  • Well done Fraser, always said he was a more sensible choice than Butland considering he's playing regular first team football and European football. Ruddy seems to be securing the 2nd spot, hasnt done anything to not deserve it, already he's shipped 5 goals in 2 games this season but it was more due to his defence (mention no names, Turner) than his own fault.
