Barkley in, Carrick put on stand by

CARRICK-GALATASARAYLUTON, May 12- Everton breakthrough star Ross Barkley, 20, was named in a youthful England World Cup squad on Monday, but Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick only made the standby list.

Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole announced his international retirement on Sunday after being informed by England manager Roy Hodgson that he would not be selected and 18-year-old Southampton defender Luke Shaw took his place.

Cole’s Chelsea team-mate Frank Lampard was also selected, despite doubts about his inclusion, but Tottenham Hotspur right-back Kyle Walker missed out due to a pelvic injury.

Phil Jones, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Jack Wilshere all overcame injury scares to be included in the 23-man list, while Southampton striker Rickie Lambert was preferred to West Ham United rival Andy Carroll.

England have been drawn in Group D at the World Cup in Brazil alongside Italy, Uruguay and Costa Rica.
