England Manager Fabio Capello is set to hand the Fulham goalkeeper David Stockdale a surprise call-up to the England squad for the upcoming Euro 2012 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Switzerland, as back-up to Joe Hart and Ben Foster, when he names his first competitive squad tomorrow since the debacle endured at the World Cup finals.

Stockdale, 24, has only three Premier League appearances to date having been thrust into the first-team in Mark Schwarzer's absence, apparently with a back injury but with his desire to move to Arsenal well known.

He has spent loan spells at Rotherham, Leicester and Plymouth but impressed the watching Capello with his display in Fulham's 2-2 draw with Manchester United last Sunday.

His inclusion effectively casts Robert Green, first-choice ahead of the tournament in South Africa, into the international wilderness.
