Robert Green and Matthew Upson have been selected in the England squad to face Kazakhstan and Belarus in the forthcoming World Cup qualifiers.
The duo were both given the boost after the 3-1 home defeat by Bolton Wanderers on Sunday afternoon. Green has one cap to his name, while Upson will hope to add to the eighth England appearance he made as a late substitute in last month's 4-1 win in Croatia. England are at home to Kazakhstan at Wembley this Saturday before the trip to face Belarus on Wednesday week.
