Carrick back in England squad

Roy Hodgson has named his England squad for the friendly against Italy in Switzerland next week, calling up Manchester United's Michael Carrick for the first time since 2010.

• Hodgson: Team GB has helped players
• Neville: England will experiment

Hodgson has given first call-ups to Spurs duo Steven Caulker and Jake Livermore as well as Chelsea's Ryan Bertrand, and is expected to hand a debut to United's Tom Cleverley, who played for Stuart Pearce's Team GB at the Olympics, as he sizes up his options in an experimental squad.

Norwich City goalkeeper John Ruddy, who was called up to the Euro 2012 squad but forced to withdraw because of injury, is named again, and fellow 'keeper Jack Butland, another Team GB player, could win a first senior cap.

Up front, Daniel Sturridge - who missed a shootout penalty as South Korea eliminated Team GB from the Games - is included, as is Andy Carroll, who scored for Hodgson's side against Sweden at Euro 2012. John Terry misses out but Chelsea team-mates Gary Cahill and Frank Lampard, who both missed Euro 2012 through injury, are selected.

England captain Steven Gerrard, as well as Wayne Rooney and Ashley Cole, were left out as Hodgson retained only three players - Joe Hart, James Milner and Ashley Young - who started the Euro 2012 quarter-final against Italy. Either Lampard or Hart would appear to be the likeliest captain.

Hodgson said he had formed the impression that Carrick had turned his back on international football, telling Sky Sports: "Michael Carrick would have always been in our thinking, but I was given to believe he didn't want to be part of the England set-up.

"He didn't want to be considered for the Euros, so I reluctantly thought that if people are not available they are not available.

"He has had discussions with Gary [Neville] and me since, and it turns out that he does want to play. This is an ideal opportunity to invite him to come and play for England again."

The coach said it was "important to make sure that the players who should have been with us at the Euros - John Ruddy, Frank Lampard, Gary Cahill - had a chance to come with us on this occasion".

And he added: "There are, I think, nine young players that we want to take a look at, and this is the ideal opportunity.

"You don't get many chances, when you've got a fairly settled squad, to look at other potential candidates, and this friendly match gives me that opportunity As a national coach, you need every game that you can get to look at players.

"I've left out a lot of the players who did extremely well at the Euros - the senior players whose position is in no doubt - to give others a chance."

The squad will travel to Switzerland on Tuesday, with the match being played on Wednesday night.

Squad in full:

Goalkeepers: Jack Butland (Birmingham City), Joe Hart (Manchester City), John Ruddy (Norwich City).

Defenders: Leighton Baines (Everton), Ryan Bertrand (Chelsea), Gary Cahill (Chelsea), Steven Caulker (Tottenham), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Kyle Walker (Tottenham ).

Midfielders: Michael Carrick (Manchester United), Tom Cleverley (Manchester United), Frank Lampard(Chelsea), Adam Johnson (Manchester City), Jake Livermore (Tottenham), James Milner (Manchester City), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (Arsenal), Jack Rodwell (Everton), Ashley Young (Manchester United).

Forwards: Andy Carroll (Liverpool), Jermain Defoe (Tottenham Hotspur), Daniel Sturridge (Chelsea), Theo Walcott (Arsenal).
