Borussia Dortmund defender Lukasz Piszczek will be out of action until 2014 after undergoing an operation on a troublesome groin.
Rooney was due to return from a hamstring injury in Tuesday’s friendly against AIK in Sweden, but pulled out of the travelling party on Monday with a shoulder injury the club say he picked up in a behind-closed-doors match.
Red Devils team-mate Wilfried Zaha is also in Roy Hodgson’s squad for the match at Wembley on Wednesday.
Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere returns to the squad for the first time since February’s 2-1 win over Brazil, though has featured only sparingly in the Gunners’ pre-season friendlies after an ankle injured hampered his involvement in the club’s run-in last term.
Southampton striker Rickie Lambert has been called up to the England squad for the first time in his career, a selection which represents a meteoric rise for the 31-year-old all the way from the fourth-tier of English football.
Lambert helped the Saints earn back-to-back promotions, and was the joint-highest scoring Englishman in the Premier League last season, notching 15 ti mes – a tally only equalled by Frank Lampard.
Norwich goalkeeper John Ruddy is also back in the squad, earning his first call-up since August last year after spending much of the previous season sidelined, while injury-plagued Ashley Young returns for the first time since suffering defeat against Sweden in November.
England squad in full: Foster, Hart, Ruddy; Baines, Cahill, Cole, Jagielka, Johnson, Jones, Smalling, Walker; Carrick, Cleverley, Gerrard, Lampard, Milner, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Walcott, Wilshere, Young, Zaha; Defoe, Lambert, Rooney, Welbeck.
