Forster and Lennon called up to 25 man England squad for qualifiers vs San Marino & Poland

By Soccer Blog | Oct 4, 2012

England manager Roy Hodgson has handed Celtic goalie Fraser Forster his maiden call up to the England squad for the Three Lions’ upcoming World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Poland. There is no recall for Manchester United veteran defender Rio Ferdinand, with Hodgson opting to fill the void caused by John Terry’s retirement with Stoke City’s Ryan Shawcross.

Kieran Gibbs replaces Chelsea’s Ryan Bertrand in the squad while there is also a recall for Spurs winger Aaron Lennon, who returns to the national squad after a two year absence.
