Daniel Sturridge has kept his place in Roy Hodgson's England squad

England coach Roy Hodgson has named Chelsea duo Daniel Sturridge and Ryan Bertrand in his squad for next month's World Cup qualifiers with Moldova and Ukraine.

The pair were both involved in the friendly win over Italy in Berne a fortnight ago.

And with Wayne Rooney ruled out by a thigh injury, Sturridge has kept his place, whilst Bertrand provides cover in both left back and left-sided midfield roles.

As expected, Jack Butland and John Ruddy were named as back-up keepers to first-choice Joe Hart.

It means Rob Green has lost his place as understudy from Euro 2012, completing a bad 24 hours for the QPR new recruit following Julio Cesar's arrival as part of the Loftus Road revolution.

Kyle Walker, who missed out on the European Championship due to a broken toe, has been named at right-back along with Liverpool's Glen Johnson.
