Leighton Baines, Phil Jagielka and Ross Barkley are all in the England squad for upcoming friendlies with Chile and Germany.

Baines and Jagielka have become England squad regulars in recent years, while Barkley forced his way into the squad earlier this season after some impressive showings for Everton.

Blues boss Roberto Martinez said: "I think Ross is still a very young man. He is focused on earning a place in the Everton first-team and being an important player. It's great that he has got the England call but he will carry on working.

"He's a young man with a terrific attitude and an example to all the youngsters at the Club. Whatever comes with England will be a bonus."

The first game of the international break sees England face Chile at Wembley on 15 November.

The Germany clash is on 19 November. The other news from the squad announcement was the inclusion of Southampton's Jay Rodriguez.

John Stones is in the England Under-21 squad for European qualifiers against Finland and San Marino.

Squad: Fraser Forster, Joe Hart, John Ruddy; Leighton Baines, Gary Cahill, Ashley Cole, Kieran Gibbs, Phil Jagielka, Glen Johnson, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Kyle Walker; Ross Barkley, Michael Carrick, Tom Cleverley, Steven Gerrard, Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana, Frank Lampard, James Milner, Andros Townsend, Jack Wilshere; Jermain Defoe, Rickie Lambert, Jay Rodriguez, Wayne Rooney, Daniel Sturridge, Daniel Welbeck
