Manchester United And Three Lions Captain Wayne Rooney has been left out of England‘s squad to face Scotland and France next month.

West Ham United defender Aaron Cresswell is also included in the squad after previously making his debut against Spain last November.

Full squad: Jack Butland, Fraser Forster, Joe Hart, Tom Heaton; Ryan Bertrand, Gary Cahill, Nathaniel Clyne, Aaron Cresswell, Ben Gibson, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, John Stones, Kieran Trippier, Kyle Walker; Dele Alli, Eric Dier, Adam Lallana, Jesse Lingard, Jake Livermore, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Raheem Sterling; Jermain Defoe, Harry Kane, Marcus Rashford, Jamie Vardy
