Liverpool's Martin Kelly called up by England ahead of Oslo friendly

Liverpool defender Martin Kelly

Liverpool defender Martin Kelly has been added to the England squad ahead of Saturday's friendly with Norway.

England manager Roy Hodgson has returned to his former club by drafting in Kelly to provide cover for the pre-Euro 2012 warm-up in Oslo.

Chelsea trio John Terry, Ashley Cole and Gary Cahill have been given extra time off following the Champions League win over Bayern Munich.

Kelly, 22, has made six appearances for England under-21s, scoring three times.

The Football Association confirmed that Kelly will return to Liverpool after the Norway fixture.

Hodgson, who was recently appointed successor to Fabio Capello, named his 23-man squad for the European Championships last week.
