Hodgson selects inexperienced England squad
Sat, 11 Aug 2012 5:33a.m.
England coach Roy Hodgson has picked an inexperienced roster for next week's exhibition against European Championship runner-up Italy, taking only 10 players from his 23-man Euro team.
Captain Steven Gerrard, defenders John Terry and Ashley Cole and striker Wayne Rooney were left off the roster, with Hodgson turning to younger players.
Ryan Bertrand, who made his first European appearance for Chelsea in the Champions League final in May, was picked for the first time, as were Steven Caulker and Jake Livermore of Tottenham.
Caulker, a central defender, played for Britain at the Olympics alongside Daniel Sturridge and Tom Cleverley, who also were selected.
