I think Lenon could be excluded because he is made out of glass. Richards vs Johnson could have gone either way. I suppose maybe Johnson has more experience than Richards. I thought Phil Jones was a CDM and was just covering on defence at ManU?
Anyway, I don't expects anything different from England. As usual they won't make it that far. I wouldn't be surprised if Gary Neville plays.

Then, again. It is Roy Hodgson. I'm just suprised he didn't call up Paul Konchesky.
"There aren't many quality left-backs around in the world, never mind in England - so to find an English one who can go straight into the team without any adjustment problems is a big advantage." - The hodge on Paul Konchesky.
for the <3 of STOLICHNAYA!!!!!
Richards is very unlucky and i would nave picked Kompany over Terry on any day
Im also surprised that Adam Johnson did not make it either.
The squad selection shows that Roy will be going with his "tried-and-tested" 4-4-2 formation and see "how far" they get. Johnson the only recognised right back, does this mean Jones is his backup?
4 wide players or wingers in Downing, Walcott, Young, Milner...possibly also the Ox. This leaves either Barry or Parker in holding midfield; and Gerrard or Lampard as attacking mid. With Rooney initially suspended, it seems he will go with Defoe/Carroll starting upfront. Can't really see how this England team will perform much better than the one that was SWC'10.
Steven Gerrard has been named as England captain by manager Roy Hodgson for Euro 2012.
