England Name Final 23-Man World Cup Squad

Sports News - May 30, 2010

The Football Association (FA) has just announced the final England 23-man squad for the World Cup. They are:

  1. David James
  2. Joe Hart
  3. Robert Green
  4. John Terry
  5. Jamie Carragher
  6. Glen Johnson
  7. Rio Ferdinand
  8. Ashley Cole
  9. Stephen Warnock
  10. Matthew Upson
  11. Ledley King
  12. Joe Cole
  13. Gareth Barry
  14. Aaron Lennon
  15. Shaun Wright-Phillips
  16. James Milner
  17. Steven Gerrard
  18. Frank Lampard
  19. Michael Carrick
  20. Emile Heskey
  21. Peter Crouch
  22. Wayne Rooney
  23. Jermain Defoe

So the big news is that there’s no room for Theo Walcott (replaced by Joe Cole). There is also no room for Darren Bent, Michael Dawson, Tom Huddlestone, Scott Parker and others.

After a lot of suspense, there are no big surprises to me in the squad. The 23 is the best team that England has and I completely agree with Fabio’s decision to select Joe Cole instead of Walcott. The Arsenal winger is fast but is completely ineffective with his final ball.

What are your thoughts regarding Capello’s selection?
