England call up Liverpool youngster Shelvey, Chelsea's Bertrand

Liverpool midfielder Jonjo Shelvey and Chelsea wing-back Ryan Bertrand have been called up to the England squad.

Bertrand is a direct replacement for Arsenal's Kieran Gibbs, who has dropped out with a thigh injury, while Shelvey steps up from the Under-21 squad as cover for Frank Lampard.

Lampard (knee) is a doubt after limping out of Chelsea's victory over Norwich at the weekend, and Hodgson has turned to 20-year-old Shelvey ahead of the experienced Gareth Barry.

Shelvey is the third uncapped player in the squad along with Ryan Shawcross and Celtic goalkeeper Fraser Forster.
