Shaw get's first call up as England squad for Denmark friendly announced

Roy Hodgson's England squad for the international friendly against Denmark at Wembley has been announced as the count down to the 2014 Brazil World Cup continues. There has been massive interest from players and fans alike on who is in the running to board the flight to Rio.

England have endured back-to-back defeats at Wembley to Chile and Germany and a third successive loss would not be good for morale, but that will not stop Hodgson experimenting when the national team take on Denmark this coming Wednesday.

"There will be an element of experimentation," the England manager told Sky Sports' Footballers' Football Show.

"All friendly matches have the same purpose. There is an element of trying to make certain that if you do have some ideas, perhaps tactical ones, this could be a good occasion to try them out.

"And on this particular occasion we will name a bigger squad than we normally do."

The squad: Goalkeepers: Fraser Forster (Celtic), Ben Foster (West Bromwich Albion), Joe Hart (Manchester City), John Ruddy (Norwich City).

Defenders: Leighton Baines (Everton), Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Steven Caulker (Cardiff City), Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Glen Johnson (Liverpool), Luke Shaw (Southampton), Chris Smalling (Manchester United), Kyle Walker (Tottenham Hotspur).

Midfielders: Ross Barkley (Everton), Michael Carrick (Manchester United), Tom Cleverley (Manchester United), Steven Gerrard (Liverpool), Jordan Henderson (Liverpool), Adam Lallana (Southampton), Frank Lampard (Chelsea), James Milner (Manchester City), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal), Raheem Sterling (Liverpool), Andros Townsend (Tottenham Hotspur), Jack Wilshere (Arsenal).

Forwards: Jermain Defoe (Toronto FC), Rickie Lambert (Southampton), Jay Rodriguez (Southampton), Wayne Rooney (Manchester United), Daniel Sturridge (Liverpool), Daniel Welbeck (Manchester United).
