[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.
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).
