Denmark Vs. England: England Squad Announced

The FA has released the members of the team that Fabio Capello will take with him to Copenhagen to take on Denmark in midweek. The friendly, which has no apparent purpose other than to tire out and injure players who're already undergoing severe fixture congestion in the Premier League, will be held on Wednesday at 7:15 PM GMT (2:15 PM EST). Here's the full squad list:

Goalkeepers: Ben Foster, Joe Hart, David Stockdale

Defenders: Leighton Baines, Gary Cahill, Ashley Cole, Michael Dawson, Glen Johnson, Joleon Lescott, John Terry, Kyle Walker

Midfielders: Gareth Barry, Stewart Downing, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, James Milner, Scott Parker, Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere, Ashley Young

Strikers: Gabriel Agbonlahor, Darren Bent, Peter Crouch, Jermain Defoe, Wayne Rooney

Notable omissions include Andy Carroll, Adam Johnson, and Rio Ferdinand, each of whom will be absent due to injury. Capello also has Frank Lampard back for the first time in several months, as the Chelsea midfielder is fit to play after a long-term groin problem. Each player named to the England squad this time around is based in Premier League, with Aston Villa contributing five players, Manchester City four, and Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea three apiece.
