England: Danny Rose, Rob Green & Jack Butland called up

Rob Green of QPR
Rob Green has been capped 12 times by England

Roy Hodgson has called two goalkeepers into his England squad for the games against Lithuania and Italy after the withdrawal of Fraser Forster.

QPR's Rob Green is recalled and Jack Butland of Stoke City moves up from the Under-21 side after Southampton's Forster suffered a serious knee injury.

Tottenham left-back Danny Rose replaces Luke Shaw of Manchester United.

England meet Lithuania at Wembley in a Euro 2016 qualifier next week before a friendly in Italy on 31 March.

Green has been capped 12 times by England, but has only appeared once for his country since the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

Butland has won one cap at senior level, against Italy in 2012 as a 19-year-old, and has captained Gareth Southgate's Under-21 side this season.

"We regard Jack Butland as the third keeper," said Hodgson when originally naming his squad.
