Former Leeds player Fabian Delph, now with Premiership side Aston Villa, will be hoping to prove he is the man to take the place of the retired midfielders Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard.

Doncaster born Danny Rose, now at Tottenham Hotspur, will stake his claim for a left back place following the retirement of Ashley Cole.

Defender John Stones, from Barnsley, has returned to the squad after making Hodgson's World Cup standby list for Brazil while regulars Gary Cahill and James Milner have both been called up.

The team play a friendly against Norway on 3 September then take on Switzerland five days later.
