England head coach Fabio Capello has finalized (or in England finalised) his 23-man roster for the World Cup.
There were a minor few surprises according to the English media, notably the exclusion of Theo Walcott and Darren Bent, but Man City midfielder Gareth Barry has apparently sufficiently recovered from an ankle injury to make the squad, although reports are that he will not be fit for the opening match of the World Cup against the USA on June 12.
Here is England’s final 23-man squad for the 2010 FIFA World Cup:
Goalkeepers: Joe Hart, David James, Robert Green
Defenders: Jamie Carragher, Ashley Cole, Rio Ferdinand, Glen Johnson, Ledley King, John Terry, Matthew Upson, Stephen Warnock
Midfielders: Gareth Barry, Michael Carrick, Joe Cole, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, Aaron Lennon, James Milner, Shaun Wright-Phillips
Forwards: Peter Crouch, Jermain Defoe, Emile Heskey, Wayne Rooney
