Roy Hodgson to name England squad today

Roy Hodgson is expected to name both Wayne Rooney and Daniel Sturridge for England's World Cup qualifiers against Montenegro and Poland.

England coach Roy Hodgson will name his squad for his side's upcoming 2014 World Cup qualifiers against Montenegro and Poland this afternoon.

According to Sky Sports News, strikers Wayne Rooney and Daniel Sturridge both will be included in the 24-man squad for the Group H matches.

Rooney recently suffered a shin injury during a Manchester United training session and missed the Red Devils' 1-1 draw at Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League on Wednesday.

However, the 27-year-old is expected to recover by this weekend and will feature for the Three Lions later this month.

Liverpool striker Sturridge will also turn out for England after sitting out his country's last two qualifiers against Moldova and Ukraine because of injury.

England are currently at the top of Group H with 16 points from 15 matches, one point ahead of Ukraine and Montenegro.
