Joe Cole out, Carragher and Hargreaves in… apparently
Is Capello making a mistake?
The provisional 30 man England squad is set to be announced later today, and the news from this morning’s Mirror is that Joe Cole will receive a double blow to the solar plexus – firstly, by not being named in the thing, and secondly by noticing that Owen Hargreaves, a man who has played roughly eight seconds of football in two years, is due to get the nod.
Others now supposedly free to book a dreamy summer vacation should include: Gareth Barry, Gary Neville, Joleon Lescott, Scott Parker, and Wes Brown. Whilst Jamie Carragher has reportedly decided to spend the summer wandering around South Africa in a pair of shorts and flip-flops, not exactly playing football. But kind of.
Here’s the probable 30:
Green, James, Hart, G Johnson, Carragher, A Cole, Baines, Terry, Ferdinand, King, Jagielka, Upson, Dawson, Lennon, Walcott, Gerrard, Lampard, Carrick, Huddlestone, Milner, Hargreaves, A Johnson, Downing, Wright-Phillips, Rooney, Defoe, Crouch, Heskey, C Cole, Bent
Or so they say.
