Jack Rodwell and Daniel Sturridge have both been given their first senior England call-ups for the forthcoming friendlies against Spain and Sweden.

Fabio Capello has also included captain John Terry in his 25-man squad, despite the ongoing investigation into allegations he racially abused Anton Ferdinand during Chelsea’s defeat by QPR last month.

Wayne Rooney, who is expected to find out this week if The FA’s appeal against Uefa’s three-game ban has been successful, is not included.

Rodwell and Sturridge join former England Under-21 team-mates Joe Hart, Phill Jones, Kyle Walker, Adam Johnson, James Milner, Theo Walcott, Gabriel Agbonlahor and Danny Welbeck in the national squad.

England take on world champions Spain at Wembley on Saturday, before hosting Sweden on Tuesday.

England squad in full:

Goalkeepers: Scott Carson (Bursapor), Joe Hart (Manchester City), David Stockdale (Ipswich Town)

Defenders: Leighton Baines (Everton), Gary Cahill (Bolton Wanderers), Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Glen Johnson (Liverpool), Phil Jones (Manchester United), Joleon Lescott (Manchester City), John Terry (Chelsea), Kyle Walker (Tottenham Hotspur)

Midfielders: Gareth Barry (Manchester City), Stewart Downing (Liverpool), Adam Johnson (Manchester City), Frank Lampard (Chelsea), James Milner (Manchester City), Scott Parker (Tottenham Hotspur), Jack Rodwell (Everton), Theo Walcott (Arsenal)

Forwards: Gabriel Agbonlahor (Aston Villa), Darren Bent (Aston Villa), Daniel Sturridge (Chelsea), Danny Welbeck (Manchester United), Bobby Zamora (Fulham)
