Bobby Zamora was named in an England squad for the first time since August after Fabio Capello announced his party for next month's Euro 2012 qualifier with Switzerland at Wembley.
Zamora was on Capello's provisional list but, after scoring in Fulham's draw with Arsenal on Sunday, Mark Hughes suggested the striker was not properly fit after recovering from a broken leg sustained in September.
As expected, there was no place for Robert Green, who had hinted he did not wish to be involved on this occasion. With Ben Foster standing down from international duty for the forseeable future, it means Scott Carson and Fulham second-choice David Stockdale will act as back-up to Joe Hart.
There is a return in central midfield for Michael Carrick, who has not featured since returning from the World Cup without playing a game.
England's squad for their Euro 2012 qualifier against Switzerland at Wembley on Saturday June 4: Carson (West Brom), Hart (Man City), Stockdale (Fulham); Baines (Everton), Cahill (Bolton), Cole (Chelsea), Ferdinand (Man Utd), Jagielka (Everton), G Johnson (Liverpool), Lescott (Man City), Terry (Chelsea), Walker (Tottenham); Barry (Man City), Carrick (Man Utd), Downing (Aston Villa), A Johnson (Man City), Lampard (Chelsea), Milner (Man City), Parker (West Ham), Walcott (Arsenal), Wilshere (Arsenal), A Young (Aston Villa); Bent (Aston Villa), Crouch (Tottenham), Defoe (Tottenham), Zamora (Fulham).
