Portsmouth veterans Sol Campbell and David James have been included in the 28-man England squad for the friendly against Germany next Wednesday.

Goalkeeper James, 37, and Campbell, 32, have not been called up by coach Steve McClaren squads since he took charge after World Cup 2006.

“Sol is a player with vast experience at international level. He had a very strong season at Portsmouth last year,” added McClaren.

“I always maintained that I wasn’t closing the door on Sol. I know he won’t let England down and I’m very pleased to welcome him back into the squad.”

He continued: “David showed excellent and consistent form for Portsmouth last season, that’s why he is back in the squad.

“His attitude and professionalism has been first-class throughout this period. I also watched him in action this week against Manchester United, he is a top-class goalkeeper and deserves his recall.”

Newcastle’s Steven Taylor has been called up to the senior squad for the first time.

Meanwhile, there is no room for Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas and Portsmouth striker David Nugent who were included in McClaren’s previous squad for the Euro 2008 qualifier against Estonia.

England squad:
Robinson (Tottenham), James (Portsmouth), Carson (Liverpool, on loan at Aston Villa), Richards (Manchester City), Brown (Manchester United), Ferdinand (Manchester United), Terry (Chelsea), Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Campbell (Portsmouth), Taylor (Newcastle), Neville (Everton), Shorey (Reading), Beckham (LA Galaxy), Gerrard (Liverpool), Lampard (Chelsea), Joe Cole (Chelsea), Wright-Phillips (Chelsea), Carrick (Manchester United), Barry (Aston Villa), Downing (Middlesbrough), Dyer (West Ham), Hargreaves (Manchester United), Smith (Newcastle), Owen (Newcastle), Crouch (Liverpool), Bent (Tottenham), Johnson (Everton), Defoe (Tottenham).
