Capello’s “New” Squad
August 7, 2010
So, here it is.
A mere 6 weeks after England crashes to it’s worst ever performance in a World Cup finals, Capello announces his all-new England squad. No great surprises here, the big names like Gerrard, Lampard and Terry have survived to stink up the team into the European Championships. Still, nice to see Adam Johnson, Bobby Zamora and Phil Jagielka get the call, doubt they’ll get any meaningful pitch time, but still good to see them there.
Goalkeepers: Ben Foster (Birmingham), Joe Hart (Manchester City), Paul Robinson (Blackburn)
Defenders: Wes Brown (Manchester United), Gary Cahill (Bolton), Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Michael Dawson (Tottenham Hotspur), Kieran Gibbs (Arsenal), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Glen Johnson (Liverpool), John Terry (Chelsea)
Midfielders: Gareth Barry (Manchester City), Steven Gerrard (Liverpool), Adam Johnson (Manchester City), Frank Lampard (Chelsea), James Milner (Aston Villa), Ashley Young (Aston Villa), Theo Walcott (Arsenal), Jack Wilshere (Arsenal)
