MOST COMMENTED

[ENGLAND] There were few surprises in Fabio Capello's provisional 30-man England squad for the 2010 World Cup. Chelsea's Joe Cole (who has battled injuries dating back to the knee injury suffered in the 2006 MLS All-Star Game) and Liverpool's Jamie Carragher (who came out of international retirement) both got callups.

There was some speculation that Bobby Zamora would be called up, but there was no spot for the popular Fulham striker.

Midfielder Gareth Barry was included in Capello's short list, though there are concerns he won't be recovered in time from an ankle injury suffered last week.

England Roster:
Goalkeepers: Joe Hart (Man. City), David James (Portsmouth), Robert Green (West Ham).
Defenders: Leighton Baines (Everton), Jamie Carragher (Liverpool), Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Michael Dawson (Tottenham), Rio Ferdinand (Man. United), Glen Johnson (Liverpool), Ledley King (Tottenham), John Terry (Chelsea), Matthew Upson (West Ham), Stephen Warnock (Aston Villa).
Midfielders: Gareth Barry (Man. City), Michael Carrick (Man. United), Joe Cole (Chelsea), Steven Gerrard (Liverpool), Tom Huddlestone (Tottenham), Adam Johnson (Man. City), Frank Lampard (Chelsea), Aaron Lennon (Tottenham), James Milner (Aston Villa), Scott Parker (West Ham), Theo Walcott (Arsenal), Shaun Wright-Phillips (Man. City).
Forwards: Darren Bent (Sunderland), Peter Crouch (Tottenham), Jermain Defoe (Tottenham), Emile Heskey (Aston Villa), Wayne Rooney (Man. United).

    looking at the England squad..I have one question: HOW THE HELL DO WE BEAT THEM? kick Rooney in the face and hope for the best! I hope Timmy Howard has one great match up his sleeve!

    I agree on paper they look good, but so did Man City and they finished 5th in the EPL. They still have to be able to play together. Do they have players who'll accept being role players... not sure. One thing for sure we'll need to be at our best!

    of course England has top players on top clubs, and we have, at best, decent players on decent clubs. However, we have shown Spain and darn nearly Brazil that a collection of top players doesn't always beat a motivated set of over achievers. Greece winning euro 2004 is another great example. Underdog's for sure, but a very real possibility to get points off England.

    You guys are dreaming, england is not only going to win agains USA, but they are going to murder them, that match is going to be a joke,its going to be a little reminder of how small and amateur the american soccer still is, but good luck anyways, US will really need it, I really don't think they even going to pass the first round, ask donovan, he knows what it takes to play at england, he knows there is no hope for USA, at least not in that first match.
