England manager Fabio Capello has announced his 23-man for the Euro 2012 qualifier against Montenegro next Tuesday and, as per usual, there are a few curveballs to digest.
Congratulations must go to Bolton captain Kevin Davies on receiving his first ever call-up to the national team, after getting the nod ahead of Newcastle’s target man Andy Carroll.
The out-of-form and crocked Wayne Rooney has been given the green light to rejoin the squad, with Rio Ferdinand and John Terry also returning to the fold after stints on the sidelines.
The England squad in full:
Joe Hart (Man City), Ben Foster (Birmingham City), Robert Green (West Ham United)
Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Glen Johnson (Liverpool), Rio Ferdinand (Man Utd), Joleon Lescott (Man City), John Terry (Chelsea), Stephen Warnock (Aston Villa)
Gareth Barry (Manchester City), Joe Cole (Liverpool), Steven Gerrard (Liverpool), Tom Huddlestone (Tottenham), Adam Johnson (Man City), Aaron Lennon (Tottenham), Jack Wilshere (Arsenal), Shaun Wright-Phillips (Man City), Ashley Young (Aston Villa)
Darren Bent (Sunderland), Peter Crouch (Tottenham), Kevin Davies (Bolton), Wayne Rooney (Man Utd)
