Cast your eyes over England’s 30-man provisional squad for the 2010 World Cup:

GKs – Joe Hart, David James, Rob Green

DFs – Leighton Baines, Jamie Carragher, Ashley Cole, Michael Dawson, Rio Ferdinand, Glen Johnson, Ledley King, John Terry, Matthew Upson, Stephen Warnock

MFs – Gareth Barry, Michael Carrick, Joe Cole, Steven Gerrard, Tom Huddlestone, Adam Johnson, Frank Lampard, Aaron Lennon, James Milner, Scott Parker, Theo Walcott, Shaun Wright-Phillips

FWDs – Darren Bent, Peter Crouch, Jermain Defoe, Emile Heskey, Wayne Rooney

First thoughts: Carragher has done his U-turn, then – I can only presume if he’s made it this far, he’ll also make it into the 23. Good to see Scott Parker and Tom Huddlestone recognised for their fine form. SWP, hmmm, no thanks. Bent above Zamora. Heskey still very much in the England club. Despite earlier reports, no room for Owen Hargreaves, whilst Barry is given a chance to prove his fitness. Glad to see Joe Cole on the longlist too – he has too much talent to be ignored. Oh, and no Phil Jagielka either.

What do you think of the 30?

    I reckon it’ll be Upson, Warnock, SWP, Parker, Bent, Huddlestone & Carrick to be trimmed.

  2. Mathers says:

    Some good choices in there. Why take Barry fit or injured i dont know. Really not sure what he brings to the team. So much for him picking on form and playing for club though, Heskey and SWP? How??

  3. Jack says:

    Not sure about SWP..but i think he will be trimmed.Heskey is in because hes a selfless foil for wazza, not sure about his finishing though! Think theres the makings of a good squad there.

  4. Kipp says:

    Dissappointed for Booby Z to see Heskey ahead of him. Puzzled by SWP and Barry. However i hope Adam Johnson can impress, championship to world cup in a season, nice story.

    Carra to SA (L)

    Alright guys, Binnsey’s XXIII

    3 GKs – Joe Hart, David James, Rob Green

    7 DFs – Jamie Carragher, Ashley Cole, Michael Dawson, Rio Ferdinand, Glen Johnson, Ledley King, John Terry,

    9 MFs – Gareth Barry, Michael Carrick, Joe Cole, Steven Gerrard, Adam Johnson, Frank Lampard, Aaron Lennon, James Milner, Theo Walcott,

    4 FWDs – Peter Crouch, Jermain Defoe, Emile Heskey, Wayne Rooney

    I hope Dawson keeps his place, sad to see Hargreaves miss out, I know he has been injured but people have been quick to forget that he and Joe Cole have been our best two players in recent competitions.

  7. Rich says:

    why do international teams need 3 goalkeepers?
    what are the odds of losing 2 in 7 games when clubs usually have 2 for sometimes 50 games in a season

  8. MC says:

    @Rich I believe it’s a requirement by the FIFA to have 3 keepers in the 23, I could be wrong though

  9. Chris says:

    @Rich & MC: As far as I know, you can only name a 23-man squad if you select 3 keepers (e.g, if you only called-up 2 GKs then you would only be allowed to take a 22-man squad to the World Cup).

  11. spectator says:

    picking carra does make sense if you want some experience off the bench, picking shawcross might have triggered a riot in wales, whatever that would look like.

    how the fuck did hesky sneak in? that makes absolutely no sense at all.

  12. syndex says:

    hmm carrager, king and terry I hope we don’t play anyone with any pace up front. The fact that carrager is anywhere near the squad on his form this year is criminal.
