Tom Huddlestone and Jermaine Jenas have earned recalls to the England squad for next Saturday's international friendly with Brazil.

The midfielders join strikers Peter Crouch and Jermain Defoe in the 24-man party for the match, which will be held at the Khalifa National Stadium in Qatar.

JJ has 20 England caps to his name but features in a Three Lions squad for the first time since September 2008.

Tom, meanwhile, is yet to win a senior international cap but was called up by Fabio Capello for friendly matches with USA and Trinidad & Tobago in May 2008.

‘Crouchy' and ‘JD' retain their places in the national squad and will be hoping to win their 36th and 38th caps respectively.

Kyle Naughton and Danny Rose will represent England at Under-21 level in their European Championship qualifier with Portugal at Wembley the same day.

And four of our young players, namely John Bostock, Steven Caulker, Ryan Mason and Dean Parrett, have been selected at Under-19 level for a friendly with Turkey at Scunthorpe on Tuesday November 17.
