Fraizer Campbell gets 1st England call-up

ROB HARRIS AP Sports Writer Published:

WEMBLEY, England (AP) -- Sunderland striker Fraizer Campbell has earned his first England call-up for next week's friendly against the Netherlands in an overhauled squad for the country's first match following Fabio Capello's resignation.

Interim coach Stuart Pearce has selected the former Manchester United player on Thursday alongside forwards Wayne Rooney, Darren Bent, Danny Welbeck and Daniel Sturridge.

John Terry is out of the squad with an injury after being stripped of the England captaincy earlier this month due to his pending racism trial -- a decision which led to Capello quitting.

Steven Gerrard is likely to captain the side next week at Wembley Stadium with Rio Ferdinand and Frank Lampard both left out of the squad.
