Fulham keeper stopper David Stockdale has been named in the England squad for next month's Euro 2012 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Wales.

Stockdale, on loan at Ipswich Town, helped Town to a 2-1 win against Leeds on Saturday, was in the England squad for the friendly against Holland earlier this month which was cancelled due to the London riots.

But boss Fabio Capello has kept faith with the goalkeeper despite Town's heavy 5-2 and 7-1 losses to Southampton and Peterborough respectively.

Even though he conceded 12 goals in those two games, Stockdale was widely praised for his performances in both.

England squad: Hart, Green, Stockdale; A Cole, Cahill, Terry, Baines. Jagielka, Smalling, Jones, Richards, Lescott; Downing, Barry, Johnson, Milner, Lampard, Cleverley, A Young, Parker, Walcott; Bent, Carroll, Rooney, Defoe.
