Coach Fabio Capello has given striker Daniel Welbeck his first callup for international duty following Aaron Lennon's withdrawal from the squad preparing for today's friendly against Ghana.

The Football Association confirmed that the Tottenham winger had been released back to his club Tottenham as a precaution after he experienced discomfort in his hamstring at the end of Monday's training session.

Initially it was suggested there would be no replacement, but Fabio Capello changed his mind and drafted Welbeck, a Manchester United player currently on loan at Sunderland, into the squad.
