Jenas called up after crocked Carrick withdraws

Tottenham's Jermaine Jenas has been called into the England squad to face the Czech Republic at Wembley.

Jenas was originally left out of Fabio Capello's 23-man party but has been granted a reprieve after Michael Carrick picked up an ankle injury on Manchester United duty against Newcastle this afternoon.

Jenas was part of Capello's first squad, scoring in the win over Switzerland in February, but seemed to have fallen out of favour.

He now gets his chance again on Wednesday and could stay in the squad for next month's World Cup qualifiers with Andorra and Croatia, which Carrick also seems likely to miss.

The other 12 England players on Barclays Premier League duty this afternoon appear to have come through unscathed and should report for duty later this evening.
