Fabio Capello Announces England Squad To Face Walas And Ghana

Fresh off a new round of controversy regarding the England captaincy, Fabio Capello has played things relatively safe with his England squad to play against Wales and Ghana during the international break. Wolverhampton Wanderers winger Matt Jarvis gets his first callup, while Phil Jagielka and Andy Carroll are both reinstated following comebacks from injury. Every player named is based in the Premier League, with Aston Villa and Manchester City both sending four representatives to the squad.

Chelsea, of course, provide the captain, with John Terry set to lead the squad out in both matches. Meanwhile, Arsenal and Manchester United only manage two players between them, although supplying Wayne Rooney and Jack Wilshere is, on balance, more than fair. The full squad may be found below:

Goalkeepers: Ben Foster (Birmingham City), Rob Green (West Ham United), Joe Hart (Manchester City)

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

Midfielders: Gareth Barry (Manchester City), Stewart Downing (Aston Villa), Matthew Jarvis (Wolverhampton), Frank Lampard (Chelsea), Aaron Lennon (Tottenham Hotspur), James Milner (Manchester City), Scott Parker (West Ham United), Jack Wilshere (Arsenal), Ashley Young (Aston Villa);

Forwards: Darren Bent (Aston Villa), Andy Carroll (Liverpool), Peter Crouch (Tottenham Hotspur), Jermain Defoe (Tottenham Hotspur), Wayne Rooney (Manchester United).
