Kevin Davies get England Euro 2012 qualifier call-up
Super Kev, backing into defenders on the international stage?
After 17 years in the professional game, burly Bolton striker Kevin Davies has finally got his chance to win an England cap, after being named in Fabio Capello’s squad to face Montenegro in the last Euro 2012 qualifier of the year next Wednesday.
There are probably less baffling inclusions than usual, other than Shaun Wright-Phillips continued association with the national setup, however, it still looks like a list fairly devoid of form.
Hart, A. Cole, A. Johnson, Huddlestone, Wilshere and Bent all jump out as being on a recent roll – but then only two of those are assured to start.
What do you reckon? Should Andy Carroll been given the nod?
