Andy Johnson and Stewart Downing have won their first call-ups to the England squad for the friendly with Holland.
Crystal Palace striker Johnson has enjoyed a fine season so far and is the top scoring Englishman in The Premiership.
Middlesbrough ace Downing has been touted for a call-up for some time after a number of eye-catching performances for the Teesside outfit this season.
Matthew Upson has pulled out of the England squad for their friendly with Holland on Wednesday.
The Birmingham defender missed his side's 2-0 loss at Manchester United on Saturday with a hamstring problem.
After talks between Blues and England officials, it was decided that Upson needed to rest his injury further and therefore would not be joining up with Sven Goran Eriksson's squad.
Stewart Downing has welcomed his arrival on the international scene after he received his long awaited call-up to the full England squad.
Downing has been heralded as the answer to The Three Lions' problematic left sided role and he is set to get the chance to impress Sven Goran Eriksson in the friendly against Holland next week.
The 21-year-old has been in scintillating form for Middlesbrough this term and is now just hoping he can do himself justice with England.
