Leon Osman, Leighton Baines and Phil Jagielka have all been named in the England squad for next week's friendly against Brazil.

On Thursday afternoon, national manager Roy Hodgson selected the Blues trio in his 24-man group for the Wembley fixture on 6 February.

Midfielder Osman was handed his international debut in November at the age of 31 and has continued his fine club form to be in line for a second cap.

Baines is joined in the squad by the returning Ashley Cole, with the Chelsea left-back looking to win his 100th cap.

Goalkeepers: Butland (Birmingham), Hart (Manchester City). Defenders: Baines (Everton), Cahill (Chelsea), Cole (Chelsea), Jagielka (Everton), Johnson (Liverpool), Lescott (Manchester City), Smalling (Manchester United), Walker (Tottenham). Midfielders: Carrick (Manchester United), Cleverley (Manchester United), Gerrard (Liverpool), Lampard (Chelsea), Lennon (Tottenham), Milner (Manchester City), Osman (Everton), Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal), Walcott (Arsenal), Wilshere (Arsenal). Forwards: Defoe (Tottenham), Rooney (Manchester United), Sturridge (Liverpool), Welbeck (Manchester United).
