Everton pair Phil Jagielka and Leighton Baines have been named in the England squad to face San Marino and Poland later this month.

The pair have been regular squad members under Roy Hodgson with both Blues defenders starting the previous qualifier against Ukraine.

They have also both scored for  England this season, Jagielka in a friendly against Italy and Baines in the 5-0 demolition of Moldova.

Baines is battling Ashley Cole and Kieran Gibbs for the left-back slot, the Chelsea man having been injured for England's last game.

Jagielka is one of four centre halves in the party, with Gary Cahill, Ryan Shawcross and former Everton man Joleon Lescott the other options.

The Three Lions host San Marino at Wembley on Friday 12 October before travelling to Warsaw to face Poland the following Tuesday.

Meanwhile Marouane Fellaini and Kevin Mirallas are in the Belgium squad to face Serbia and Wales.

England Squad: Fraser Forster, Joe Hart, John Ruddy; Leighton Baines, Gary Cahill, Ashley Cole, Kieran Gibbs, Phil Jagielka, Glen Johnson, Joleon Lescott, Ryan Shawcross, Kyle Walker; Michael Carrick, Tom Cleverley, Steven Gerrard, Adam Johnson, Aaron Lennon, Frank Lampard, James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Theo Walcott; Andy Carroll, Jermain Defoe, Wayne Rooney, Daniel Welbeck.
