I would have taken Crouch instead of Welbeck, Adam Johnson instead of Walcott, and Henderson wouldn't be anywhere near the squad.

Crouch instead of Carroll. He's had about 3 good games at the tail end of the season. That's not international form.

I'd take him, i know he's just had a crap season, but i do think he'll get back to the form he had at Newcastle.

Well he did score a few in the Prem League as well, and looked very comfortable, i'm sure thats why LFC shelled out 35m

Agree about Carroll But i would question why Downing,Milner & Defoe are going.Downing (has been very poor) Milner (has hardly been in the City team of late) & Defoe (cannot get in the Spurs team) surely to be in the England squad you have to be playing first team football.

we have Germany, Denmark and Netherlands... tough one, but I think we can go through. We have some great players, Pepe and Bruno Alves as defenders are really tough guys, plus some good youth...

Bad luck to John Ruddy, he gets his first call up on the strength of a decent season, and he's gone and broke a finger in training :( and is replaced with a real rookie in Birmingham City's 19-year-old shot-stopper Jack Butland :shock:

Carlos Martins out, Hugo Viana in. He's a good player, let's see how it goes.

I like the classic plain red, don't like the white away shirt so much... I think we could have the old white and blue back.
