Shaw was part of Hodgson's World Cup squad and has since completed a £30 million move to Manchester United.
Things haven't exactly gone to plan for the former Southampton ace, however, as injury problems have ruled him out of action for several weeks.
Chambers, by contrast, has enjoyed a brilliant start to the season since joining the Gunners from the Saints for £16 million.
And his good form has been rewarded with his first international call-up, something Shaw feels he fully deserves.
@CalumChambers95 yes lad ! You deserve it ! Congratulations !!!— Luke Shaw (@LukeShaw3) August 28, 2014
England will face Norway at Wembley Stadium in a friendly, before traveling to Switzerland for their opening Euro 2016 qualifier.
Chambers is a full-back by trade but has been deputising at centre-back for Arsenal so far this season - and to good effect.
|Team||Pos||Accurate Passes||Tackles Won||Effective Clearances||Aerial Duels Won||Apps||Mins|

As Opta stats show, no defender has completed more passes than the 19-year-old in the Premier League so far, while he has also won six tackles and five aerial duels, as well as completing 18 effective clearances.
What do you make of Chambers' England call-up?
