The fromer Hurricanes Super 14 inside back Riki Flutey has kept his spot in the England rugby squad after manager Martin Johnson named a revised 32-man squad for the upcoming Six Nations tournament.
Johnson has turned to the World Cup experience of Mike Tindall and Mark Cueto as he seeks to get the former world champion back on track after a miserable November of international fixtures.
Uncapped Northampton half back Foden, who can also play fullback, was also named in place of Peter Richards.
Flanker Lewis Moody, who missed all four November games through injury, also keeps his place and will be a strong contender to start.
Centre Tindall did not make the original squad named at the start of the season after a series of injuries and a poor tour of New Zealand last year.
Winger Cueto hasn't played for the national side since the 2007 World Cup final.
Steve Borthwick retains the captaincy.
