Are You Sven In Disguise?
June 1, 2010
So, here it is, England’s squad to conquer the world in South Africa…
Goalkeepers: Joe Hart, David James, Robert Green.
Defenders: Jamie Carragher, Ashley Cole, Rio Ferdinand, Glen Johnson, Ledley King, John Terry, Matthew Upson, Stephen Warnock
Midfielders: Gareth Barry, Michael Carrick, Joe Cole, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, Aaron Lennon, James Milner, Shaun Wright-Phillips.
Forwards: Peter Crouch, Jermain Defoe, Emile Heskey, Wayne Rooney
Make no bones about it, this is a VERY conservative selection from Signor Capello.
There are a few surprises, but mainly more as to who has been left out, Would you seriously pick SWP over Walcott? Upson over Dawson? Emile “Prolific” Heskey over Darren Bent? This team smacks too much of “Sven” to make a real run at the pot in South Africa and will go out in the quarters (again).
Your thoughts please…
