London – Chelsea left back Ashley Cole is in line to win his 100th England cap after being named in manager Roy Hodgson's 24-man squad on Thursday for next week's friendly against Brazil.

Cole returns after missing England's last game, a 4-2 defeat by Sweden in November, through injury.

Manchester United defender Chris Smalling is also back in the squad for the first time in almost a year and Everton midfielder Leon Osman, a surprise inclusion for Sweden, retains his place.

England play Brazil at Wembley on Wednesday ahead of World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Montenegro in March.

Defenders: Leighton Baines, Gary Cahill, Ashley Cole, Phil Jagielka, Glen Johnson, Joleon Lescott, Chris Smalling, Kyle Walker.
