Keegan gives youth a chance
Frank Lampard on a typical midfield run for West Ham
Kevin Keegan has picked a number of youngsters and two Sunderland players in the England squad for the friendly against Hungary in Budapest next week.
Sunderland's Michael Gray and Kevin Phillips are also selected, fresh from their First Division Championship success.
A number of Manchester United and Arsenal players are rested from the squad following the club's request that they be allowed to concentrate on the title race.
'Give and take'
David Beckham, Gary Neville and Tony Adams are absent, although Martin Keown, David Seaman, Andy Cole and Phil Neville are among those included.
For Sunderland pair Gray and Phillips, the call-ups recognise their roles in the Wearside club's return to the Premiership this season.
It is less than a year since Gray missed the Wembley penalty which cost Peter Reid's side a place in the top flight.
Phillips has scored 23 goals this season despite missing much of the early part of the campaign with injury.
Woodgate joined up with the England squad for training before last month's European Championship qualifying win over Poland at Wembley.
But his call-up is still something of a surprise at the age of 19, given that he has not played for his country at under-21 level.
Lampard in father's footsteps
The same cannot be said of Lampard, who has captained the under-21 side with distinction this season, scoring in all four of his country's Euro qualifiers.
He follows in the footsteps of his father Frank Snr, who won two full caps.
Brown has followed a similar path this season, being a regular for the under-21 side, and he has impressed with a maturity beyond his 19 years.
He was on the substitutes' bench for United's dramatic victory over Juventus in Turin on Wednesday.
Heskey is given a second chance after being forced to pull out of the squad which took on the Czech Republic in November through injury.

Under-21 call up for Young
Tottenham central defender Luke Young has won a call-up for the Under-21's friendly with Hungary next Tuesday.
Young played for England in last summer's European Championship Under 18 finals in Cyprus.
He has created a favourable impression under George Graham at White Hart Lane and has at times been preferred to experienced internationals Ramon Vega and Colin Calderwood.
