Last week Wayne Rooney was named as the name England skipper by Roy Hodgson.
Skjelbred will lead a Norwegian side keen to impress against an England team playing their first match since their disappointing early exit from the World Cup in Brazil.
Høgmo has named eight new players in his squad, but excluded 15-year-old Martin Ødegaard. The young prodigy will play in the Under 21 national match even though he impressed while playing in his first international cap and a goalless encounter at the Viking Stadium against UAE last week.
Norway will next play Italy on September 9th, their first qualifying game for the European Championship to be held in France in 2016.
