Everton duo Leighton Baines and Ross Barkley have been named in the England squad for next week's friendly against Denmark.

Three Lions regular Phil Jagielka would have been in-line for a call-up but misses out with a hamstring injury.

Manager Roy Hodgson has selected a 30-man squad for the 5 March clash at Wembley - England's first game since last December's draw for the 2014 World Cup.

Baines, who could earn his 23rd cap, is named alongside fellow left-backs Ashley Cole and Luke Shaw, while Barkley is one of 12 midfielders. The 20-year-old will be hoping to make his fourth outing in international colours, having being handed his debut against Moldova last August.

Newspaper speculation had tipped Gareth Barry for a recall but the on-loan 33-year-old has not made the squad.

Meanwhile, defender John Stones has been named in Gareth Southgate's England Under-21 party for their European qualifier against Wales at Derby County's iPro Stadium on the same evening.  

Look out for news of more international call-ups on in the coming days.
