Four in England squad

Kyle Walker has been called into the full England squad for the first time for Wednesday's friendly against Denmark in Copenhagen.

He is joined by Michael Dawson, Jermain Defoe and Peter Crouch in Fabio Capello's 25-man squad.

Capped four times at Under-21 level, the young right-back is currently in fine form on loan at Aston Villa and scored in Saturday's 2-2 draw against Fulham at Villa Park.

Michael and Jermain are both back in the squad after suffering injuries on England duty in September.

Defender 'Daws' damaged his ankle against Bulgaria at Wembley and striker 'JD', who scored a hat-trick that night, then suffered an ankle problem in the next international against Switzerland.

Jermain's strike partner 'Crouchy' maintained his amazing strike-rate for England in the last international against France in November when he came off the bench to score his 22nd goal in 42 appearances.

Squad: Ben Foster, Joe Hart, David Stockdale; Leighton Baines, Gary Cahill, Ashley Cole, Michael Dawson, Glen Johnson, Joleon Lescott, John Terry, Kyle Walker; Gareth Barry, Stewart Downing, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, James Milner, Scott Parker, Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere, Ashley Young; Gabriel Agbonlahor, Darren Bent, Peter Crouch, Jermain Defoe, Wayne Rooney.
