Roy Hodgson names England squad
The pair were both involved in the friendly victory over Italy in Berne. And with Wayne Rooney ruled out by a thigh injury, Sturridge has kept his place, while Bertrand provides cover in both left back and left-sided midfield roles.
As expected, Jack Butland and John Ruddy were named as backup keepers to first choice Joe Hart. It means Rob Green has lost his place as understudy from Euro 2012, completing a bad 24 hours for the Queens Park Rangers new recruit following Julio Cesar's arrival as part of the Loftus Road revolution.
The one surprising omission is that of Manchester United winger Ashley Young who was at the Euros and who also started against Italy earlier this month. Even without Young, in total Hodgson has named 15 members of his 23-man Euro 2012 squad.
Manchester United's Michael Carrick and Tom Cleverley are also on the team, along with Adam Johnson, who has left Manchester City for Sunderland in order to further his international ambitions. Andy Carroll and Theo Walcott are also included despite speculation about their futures.
It is believed John Terry will undergo a fitness test on the neck injury that prevented him from playing in Chelsea's Premier League clash with Newcastle last weekend.
