Roy Hodgson Names Four Newcomers In England Squad

Chambers, Rose, Colback And Delph Get The Nod From Roy

Roy Hodgson has named four uncapped players in his first post-World CupEngland squad for next Wednesday's friendly with Norway and the European Championship qualifier in Switzerland.

Arsenal defender Calum Chambers, Tottenham left-back Danny Rose, Aston Villa's Fabian Delph and Newcastle midfielder Jack Colback are the newcomers in a depleted squad that will be lead by new captain Wayne Rooney.

Rooney will inherit the armband from Steven Gerrard

Manchester United pair Chris Smalling and Luke Shaw are sidelined through injury, as are Tottenham's Kyle Walker, Arsenal full-back Kieran Gibbs, Everton's Ross Barkley and Liverpool's Adam Lallana.

Colback and Chambers both moved clubs this summer

Andros Townsend is also restored to the squad after missing the World Cup through injury, despite scant opportunities in Tottenham's opening two Premier League matches.

England host the Norwegians at Wembley on Wednesday before facing the Swiss in Basel on Monday 8 September.
