England coach Fabio Capello has left out Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard from his latest squad.

England coach Fabio Capello has left out Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard from his latest squad.

England will head into their Euro 2012 showdown with Montenegro without two of their most experienced players after Rio Ferdinand and Gerrard were both left out of Fabio Capello's squad.

With Chris Smalling, like Tom Cleverley and Robert Green, ruled out through injury, a vacancy exists at right-back and the recalled Kyle Walker didn't do his chances of keeping out Micah Richards any harm by lashing home the winner for Tottenham in front of Capello in Sunday afternoon's north London derby.

Meanwhile, Scott Carson's presence proves the England coaching team have not forgotten him despite a summer move to former Turkish champions Bursaspor.

England squad: S Carson (Bursaspor), J Hart (Man City), D Stockdale (Ipswich); L Baines (Everton), G Cahill (Bolton), A Cole (Chelsea), P Jagielka (Everton), P Jones (Man Utd), M Richards (Man City), J Terry (captain, Chelsea), K Walker (Tottenham); G Barry (Man City), S Downing (Liverpool), A Johnson (Man City), F Lampard (Chelsea), J Milner (Man City), S Parker (Tottenham), T Walcott (Arsenal), A Young (Man Utd); D Bent (Aston Villa), A Carroll (Liverpool), W Rooney (Man Utd), D Welbeck (Man Utd), B Zamora (Fulham)
