Raheem Sterling has been recalled to the England Under-21 squad as boss Gareth Southgate aims to extend his unbeaten start to life in charge.
The Liverpool starlet missed the last two games for the Young Lions after being called up to Roy Hodgson's senior side.
But Sterling, who has had problems off the field in recent months, has not been named in his 23-man squad for the crucial World Cup qualifiers against Montenegro and Poland.
Southgate, who signed a three-year deal as boss in August after Stuart Pearce's departure, took the opportunity to name the 18-year-old in his squad for the European Championship qualifying double-header against San Marino and Lithuania.
Joining him in the 24-man party are Blackpool's Tom Ince who is fit again after injury ruled him out of the previous games against Scotland, Moldova and Finland and West Ham's Ravel Morrison.
Perhaps the biggest surprise, though, is the inclusion of Burnley's goal ace Danny Ings who has never represented his country at any level before.
A lot was expected of the likeable 21-year-old this season after the high-profile departure of Charlie Austin from the Lancashire side.
But Ings has not disappointed having blossomed under boss Sean Dyche, nicknamed 'the ginger Mourinho', and his call up is just reward for a 10 goal haul in just 13 games has fired Burnley to the top of the Championship .
Southgate's side travel to San Marino for a match on Thursday October 10 before facing Lithuania at Portman Road five days later.
Not joining them on the plane is Sterling's Liverpool team-mate Andre Wisdom after the FA decided not to appeal his four-game ban for seeing red in the 1-1 draw against Finland.
