Jarvis named in England squad

LONDON - Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Matt Jarvis was the surprise name on Sunday in England coach Fabio Capello's squad for next week's Euro 2012 qualifier in Wales.

The diminutive 24-year-old earned his opportunity as Theo Walcott and Adam Johnson are injured and he will battle with Aaron Lennon and Ashley Young for wide roles against the Welsh and in the following week's Wembley friendly against Ghana.

Should Jarvis win his first cap, he would be the first Wolves player to represent England since striker Steve Bull 21 years ago.

Everton centre-back Phil Jagielka and Liverpool striker Andy Carroll were recalled having missed last month's friendly in Denmark through injury.

Montenegro top the Group G standings with 10 points from four games. England are second on seven from three with Wales bottom having lost all three matches.
