The Manchester United defender has been omitted along with Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard, who has just made his comeback following a lengthy spell on the sidelines with a groin injury.
England boss Fabio Capello has recalled Manchester United forward Danny Welbeck, who missed last monthâ€™s games through injury, and Tottenhamâ€™s Kyle Walker after he scored the winner in Sundayâ€™s north London derby against Arsenal.
Bobby Zamora, a scorer on Sunday in Fulham’s 6-0 thrashing of Queens Park Rangers, joins Liverpool’s Andy Carroll among the forwards on Capelloâ€™s list.
A point against Montenegro in Podgorica will be enough to secure a place at next summerâ€™s Euro 2012 finals in Poland and Ukraine.
