Skuad Inggris Terpilih Untuk 2 Laga Persahabatan

Sebuah gebrakan kembali dilakukan oleh Capello dengan memanggil dua pemain debutan, Daniel Sturridge (Chelsea) dan Jack Rodwell (Everton) dalam 25 pemain yang dipanggil dalam menghadapi dua laga persahabatan di Wembley. Dengan adanya dua pemain tersebut, maka jumlah pemain debutan di Inggris saat ini menjadi empat, dengan dua pemain debutan lainnya yang sudah pernah dipanggil sebelumnya, yaitu Kyle Walker (Tottenham) dan David Stockdale (Ipswich).

Kedua pemain tersebut sebelumnya merupakan bagian dari squad U-21 Inggris pada Piala Eropa U-21 di Denmark musim panas lalu dan telah menampilkan kemampuan terbaiknya pada musim ini. Mereka akan bertemu dengan mantan rekan mereka di timnas U-21, seperti Joe Hart, Phil Jones, Kyle Walker, Adam Johnson, James Milner, Theo Walcott, Gabriel Agbonlahor, dan Danny Welbeck.

Inggris akan menghadapi laga ujicoba melawan Spanyol pada tanggal 12 November, sebelum mereka menghadapi ujicoba kandang lainnya melawan Swedia pada tanggal 15 November.

Berikut ini adalah daftar squad yang dipanggil:

Goalkeepers: Scott Carson (Bursapor), Joe Hart (Manchester City), David Stockdale (Ipswich Town – loan from Fulham)

Defenders: Leighton Baines (Everton), Gary Cahill (Bolton Wanderers), Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Glen Johnson (Liverpool), Phil Jones (Manchester United), Joleon Lescott (Manchester City), John Terry (Chelsea), Kyle Walker (Tottenham Hotspur) 

Midfielders: Gareth Barry (Manchester City), Stewart Downing (Liverpool), Adam Johnson (Manchester City), Frank Lampard (Chelsea), James Milner (Manchester City), Scott Parker (Tottenham Hotspur), Jack Rodwell (Everton), Theo Walcott (Arsenal) 

Forwards: Gabby Agbonlahor (Aston Villa), Darren Bent (Aston Villa), Daniel Sturridge (Chelsea), Danny Welbeck (Manchester United), Bobby Zamora (Fulham)

England’s final 23 released

Ok, this is the official final 23 of the Three Lions team for South Africa 2010.

Goalkeepers: Robert Green, Joe Hart, David James

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

Seven who miss out are Baines, Dawson, Huddlestone, Parker, Adam Johnson, Walcott, Bent.

Compared with my prediction, I just made one mistake (yess!!) coz Don Fabio prefer to bring Warnock rather thank Huddlestone. Well, since Garreth Barry is reported fit based on today’s testing ‘n scanning, then England don’t need to bring another Defensive Midfielder (besides Carrick on the bench).

Btw, my deepest condolences for Theo Walcott ‘n Arsenal fans. But, don’t be sad friends. He’s still young ‘n he can prepare himself better so that he can make it in the next World Cup.

Let’s hope for the BEST for England for World Cup 2010!! Next match is against U.S.A on June 12th 2010. Be ready friends!! Coz football is on the way to home!! Come on England!!

My Prediction of England’s Final 23

Based on what I saw from England’s last two friendly matches. This is my prediction of 23 players that will join England team in South Africa:

taken from: http://www.telegraph.co.uk(choose your 23)

Goalkeeper: Robert Green, Joe Hart, David James

Defender: Glenn Johnson, Rio Ferdinand, John Terry, Ashley Cole, Ledley King, Matthew Upson, Carragher

Midfielder: Joe Cole, Frank Lampard, Garreth Barry, Steven Gerrard, Aaron Lennon, Tom Huddlestone, James Milner, Michael Carrick, Shaunn-Wright Phillips

Striker: Peter Crouch, Wayne Rooney, Jermaine Defoe, Emile Heskey

Eliminated players: Adam Johnson, Leighton Baines, Stephen Warnock, Darren Bent, Scott Parker, Michael Dawson, Theo Walcott

Well, it can be right or wrong. One thing that should be noted that Garreth Barry is still doubtfull ’till today, if he can’t make it, then I think he’ll be replaced by Theo Walcott. But his position as a defensive midfielder will be replaced by Steven Gerrard ‘n SWP will play on the right flank ‘n Joe Cole on the left.

Why I choose Theo Walcott to be taken out? If you see his last two performance, he played with no vision at all. He played so poorly, but on the other side Aaron Lennon played well. What he only got is speed ‘n nothing beside it. So, I think it’s better for Capello not to choose him.

Why I choose Tom Huddlestone? England needs a holding midfielder beside Garreth Barry, and I think this player has an ability to be a holding midfielder better than James Milner. ‘n he show his best in last two games.

Why I choose Carragher? He has shown his best at the friendly match, better than Leighton Baines and Stephen Warnock. Beside his experiences in International match, he can also play at every side of England defence area.

Well, once again it’s only my prediction. Let’s see what will happen on next tuesday. Hope for the BEST for England.

Football is coming home!!

Come on England!!

Mourinho is the Real Special One
