Ukraine coach Oleg Blokhin has named a familiar-looking squad for the 2014 World Cup qualifier against Group H rivals England at Wembley next month.

Ten players who started Ukraine's 1-0 defeat by England at Euro 2012 are included for the 11 September clash.

However, Blokhin cannot call on the services of Andriy Shevchenko following the 35-year-old striker's retirement from football last month.

Dynamo Kiev and Shakhtar Donetsk are represented by six players each.

Ukraine squad (v England, 11 September, at Wembley):

Goalkeepers: Andriy Dykan (Spartak Moscow), Andriy Pyatov (Shakhtar Donetsk).

Defenders: Maxym Koval (Dynamo Kiev), Vyacheslav Shevchuk, Olexandr Kucher, Yaroslav Rakytskiy (Shakhtar Donetsk), Taras Mykhalyk, Yevhen Khacheridi (both Dynamo Kiev), Vitaliy Mandzyuk (Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk), Bohdan Butko (FC Illichivets Mariupol), Yevhen Selin (Vorskla Poltava).

Midfielders: Oleg Gusev, Denis Garmash, Andriy Yarmolenko (all Dynamo Kiev), Yevhen Konoplianka, Ruslan Rotan (both Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk), Sergiy Nazarenko (SC Tavriya Simferopol), Taras Stepanenko (Shakhtar Donetsk), Anatoliy Tymoschuk (FC Bayern Munich).

Forwards: Roman Zozulya (Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk), Roman Bezus (Vorskla Poltava), Marco Devic (Shakhtar Donetsk).
