Uncapped players in England football squad

5:13 pm on 6 February 2011

The England football manager Fabio Capello has called up uncapped Aston Villa defender Kyle Walker and Fulham keeper David Stockdale for this week's friendly against Denmark in Copenhagen.

Tottenham's Michael Dawson returns to the squad following his injury last year suffered against Bulgaria at Wembley, while there is also a place for Everton's Leighton Baines.

But Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand is missing from the 25-man squad after injuring his calf in the warm-up before today's shock 2-1 defeat at Wolves.

Walker, who is just 20, has excelled in loan spells with both QPR and Aston Villa after Spurs boss Harry Redknapp decided there was no short-term use for the Sheffield-born player at his parent club Tottenham.
