Fabio Capello has named a 24-man squad for England's first match of 2010, a friendly against Egypt on Wednesday evening.
Stewart Downing returns to the squad for the first time in a year having returned from injury and finding fine recent form with Aston Villa, he is one of seven players who could potentially be involved in Sunday's Carling Cup Final between Villa and Manchester United.
Ryan Shawcross is called into the England squad for the first time, while Leighton Baines and Stephen Warnock will compete for the left-back spot in the absence of both Ashley Cole and Wayne Bridge.
Joe Hart is one of England's trio of goalkeepers following his consistent form on loan at Birmingham City, joining Portsmouth's David James and West Ham United stopper Robert Green.
