Phil Jagielka and Leighton Baines have been included in the Roy Hodgson’s England squad for the summer friendlies.

However Leon Osman, who won his first England cap against San Marino back in March has been omitted.

England are set to face the Republic of Ireland and Brazil.

The first match could see Jags and Baines come up against Seamus Coleman who has also been included in the provisional Republic of Ireland squad.

Meanwhile the Brazil game will be held in Rio de Janeiro to help the Football Association celebrate their 150th anniversary.
