Clarets goalkeeper Tom Heaton has retained his spot in Roy Hodgson’s 24-man England squad for the UEFA Euro 2016 qualifiers against Estonia and Lithuania.

Striker Danny Ings, who joined Premier League Liverpool in the summer, has also earned his first senior call up on the back of netting twice for the Reds.

Turf Moor skipper Heaton was first selected for the Three Lions for the international friendly against the Republic of Ireland at Dublin’s Aviva Stadium in June and watched from the sidelines once more as England beat Slovenia and San Marino last month.

The 29-year-old, who became the first Burnley player to be named in a senior England squad since Martin Dobson in 1974, will be among fellow keepers Joe Hart and Jack Butland for the fixture at Wembley next Friday and the following Group E clash at the LFF Stadionas in Vilnius on Monday, October 12th.

Here’s the full England squad for the double-header against Estonia and Lithuania: Jack Butland, Joe Hart, Tom Heaton, Ryan Bertrand, Gary Cahill, Nathaniel Clyne, Kieran Gibbs, Phil Jagielka, Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, John Stones, Dele Alli, Ross Barkley, Michael Carrick, Adam Lallana, James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Jonjo Shelvey, Raheem Sterling, Danny Ings, Harry Kane, Wayne Rooney, Jamie Vardy, Theo Walcott.

Danny Ings’ former strike partner at the Clarets Sam Vokes has also today received a call up to the Wales squad for their qualifiers against Bosnia-Herzegovina and Andorra as the Welsh bid to end a fifty eight year absence from featuring in a major tournament.
