Chelsea youngster Ryan Bertrand has replaced Kieran Gibbs in the England squad after the Arsenal man was ruled out of the games with San Marino and Poland.
The left-back picked up a knock to his thigh during the 3-1 win over West Ham, forcing England manager Roy Hodgson to call up Bertrand.
Liverpool midfielder Jonjo Shelvey will train with the squad to gain experience as he is banned for the Under-21s game with Serbia at Carrow Road on Friday, although he may make his senior debut against a side that the Three Lions are expected to hammer.
