Roy Hodgson has named his squad for the upcoming Euro 2016 Qualifiers against San Marino and Estonia.

Southampton right-back Nathaniel Clyne is the only uncapped player in the squad and Hodgson has decided to leave injured Liverpool striker Daniel Sturridge out - which will please Reds boss Brendan Rodgers.

Full squad:

Goalkeepers: Fraser Forster, Ben Foster, Joe Hart.

Defenders: Leighton Baines, Nathaniel Clyne, John Stones, Gary Cahill, Keiran Gibbs, Phil Jagielka.

Midfielders: Fabian Delph, Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana, James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jonjo Shelvey, Raheem Sterling, Andros Townsend, Jack Wilshere.

Strikers: Danny Welbeck, Rickie Lambert, Wayne Rooney

Platini wants secret World Cup report to be made public

UEFA president Michel Platini has added his voice to calls for a secret report into World Cup bidding to be made public.

FIFA president Sepp Blatter has rejected calls to publish the report by FIFA's independent investigator Michael Garcia - saying any decision is out of their hands and would threaten witness confidentiality.

Platini joins a number of fellow FIFA executive committee members including Northern Ireland's Jim Boyce - and Garcia himself - in calling for the report to be published.

The UEFA president said in a statement: "As long as the regulations of the FIFA code of ethics regarding the actual investigation are respected, I support the publishing of the Garcia report.

"I have no issue with the findings and recommendations of the report being made available to the public."

The decision to publish now rests German judge Hans-Joachim Eckert, who is considering the report and will announce his findings in November.

Russia won the bid for the 2018 World Cup and Qatar will stage the 2022 tournament.
