Ashley Cole is in line to become the seventh player to win 100 England caps after being named in Roy Hodgson's squad for next week's friendly with Brazil at Wembley.
The most notable exclusion was Tottenham's Scott Parker, now fit again after returning from Euro 2012 with an Achilles injury.
Hodgson has taken the unusual step of naming only two goalkeepers - Joe Hart and sought after Birmingham youngster Jack Butland - whilst Chris Smalling is called up for the first time during Hodgson's tenure after recovering from injury.
