Rob Green has been called into the England squad

Rob Green and Danny Rose have been called into the England squad for the matches against Lithuania and Italy, while Jack Butland has been promoted from the Under-21s.

Roy Hodgson has taken the decision to call on both Queens Park Rangers’ Green and Stoke City’s Butland following the injury sustained by Fraser Forster in Southampton’s 2-0 win over Burnley on Saturday.

Elsewhere, the withdrawal of Manchester United’s Luke Shaw through injury has resulted in left-back Rose being added to the squad. 

England entertain Lithuania at Wembley Stadium on Friday in a European Championship Qualifier before a trip to Turin to face Italy the following Tuesday.
