Ferdinand was left out of the 23-man party with Hodgson, who made the controversial decision to pick John Terry, claiming the Manchester United defender was not dropped because of the race row involving Terry and Ferdinand’s brother Anton.On Twitter, Ferdinand wrote: ‘Absolutely loved playing for England....to say I’m gutted is an understatement of the highest order....’The new England boss handed call-ups to uncapped Norwich goalkeeper John Ruddy and Arsenal’s teenage forward Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.‘I’m obviously delighted,’ said the 18-year-old.‘To be picked for your country at any stage is a massive honour.‘I would have probably laughed if someone had told me I would be in the Euro 2012 squad a year ago.’

His on-loan Gunners team-mate Yossi Benayoun tweeted his support for the youngster, saying: 'Good luck my friend! Happy for you.'BLOG: England’s Euro 2012 squad: Controversial? Yes. Wrong? Depends on your level of expectation
