Wolves winger Matt Jarvis was celebrating his first England call-up on Sunday night after being named in Fabio Capello's 26-man squad for the Euro 2012 qualifier with Wales and the friendly against Ghana at Wembley on March 29.

The 24-year-old has been named in a couple of provisional squads already this season but failed to make the final cut.

However, with Theo Walcott and Adam Johnson ruled out through injury, Capello has handed Jarvis his chance to compete for starting spots with Aaron Lennon and Ashley Young.

Lennon is included for the first time since England's last qualifier against Montenegro in October.

However, more notable is the return of new Liverpool striker Andy Carroll, who impressed Capello hugely when he made his debut in the friendly defeat to France in November.

The £35 million forward missed last month's encounter with Denmark due to a thigh injury but the England coach always made it clear Carroll would return once he had regained his fitness.

England squad:

Goalkeepers: Joe Hart (Manchester City), Ben Foster (Birmingham City), Robert Green (West Ham United)

Defenders: Glen Johnson (Liverpool), John Terry (Chelsea), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Kyle Walker (Tottenham Hotspur - on loan at Aston Villa), Gary Cahill (Bolton Wanderers), Michael Dawson (Tottenham Hotspur), Joleon Lescott (Manchester City), Leighton Baines (Everton)

Midfielders: Aaron Lennon (Tottenham Hotspur), Jack Wilshere (Arsenal), Frank Lampard (Chelsea), Ashley Young (Aston Villa), James Milner (Aston Villa), Scott Parker (West Ham United), Gareth Barry (Manchester City), Stewart Downing (Aston Villa), Matthew Jarvis (Wolverhampton Wanderers)

Forwards: Andy Carroll (Liverpool), Wayne Rooney (Manchester United), Darren Bent (Aston Villa), Peter Crouch (Tottenham Hotspur), Jermain Defoe (Tottenham Hotspur)
