Raheem Sterling, Jake Livermore and Adam Lallana have all made the England squad for the Three Lions' qualifier against Ukraine on Tuesday.

England might have smacked Moldova around on Friday, but they've been hit by a slew of injuries ahead of their second 2014 World Cup qualifier. Roy Hodgson and crew are going to be forced to navigate the far trickier prospect of a match against Ukraine on Tuesday, and they're going to have to do it without former captain John Terry, left back Ashley Cole and Arsenal winger Theo Walcott. There's also some question as to whether or not Chelsea striker Daniel Sturridge will recover from a stomach bug in time for the game at Wembley.

But that means it's time for some fresh faces. Callups are basically the best part of international football, because they mostly happen to players who aren't completely jaded about the whole thing. Joining the England squad are Raheem Sterling, Jake Livermore and Adam Lallana, who have a grand total of one cap between them. Sure, they're unlikely to feature, but you have to imagine they're happier about being involved in the England setup than Ashley Cole would have been.
