No Gibbs on standby and only one proper right back in the squad, which is Glen Johnson ffs.

Was Beckham already at MLS in 2008? He wasn't at WC 2010 as a player.

His last match was WC2006, when he was at Real Madrid. tbh you are right because that is the same game Hargreaves played when at Bayern.

For me it would be:

Out

Phil Jones

Gary Cahill

Stuart Downing

James Milner

Andy Caroll

In

Micah Richards

Phil Jagielka

Adam Johnson

Michael Carrick

Daniel Sturridge

That's shocking to be honest.

Downing should have been nowhere near the squad. And, no Michael Carrick? He isn't the greatest player, but is a lot better than Barry.

I can see England starting like this:

-------------Hart--------------

Johnson-Lescott-Terry-----Cole

Walcott-Lampard-Parker-Gerrard

--------Carroll--Defoe---------

Maybe Carrick has secretly retired

There can be no other logical explanation for choosing Henderson ahead of him. None.

I've been getting behind this squad for the last 3 tournaments. It's all the usual suspects.

I've got tables to flip...

I think he will possibly start Walcott up front with Carroll. Gerrard right midfield?

So tired of Gerrard and lampard, one should have been dropped for another defender.

You can certainly tell we'll be set up well defensively from the squad.

Downing is disapointing, but lets not act shocked. He featured in every England game last year. Not sure how.

I prefer that to the last suggestion. Roy is a pretty staunch 442 manager though.

Oh dear how Downing always gets in the squad is beyond me! Adam Johnson in over him all day! and would of also took Micah Richards and Carrick in over Henderson for standbyes atleast and possibly over Parker after his injury fears atm

Doesn't fill me with confidence, oh well, maybe they'll surprise us. Or maybe not.

Don't think Roy's thought this through enough.

Henderson over Carrick makes sense as a backup given the relative ages of the players and the fact that they're going to be like 5th choice anyway.

Hmm, someone should think about playing Gerrard and Lampard together in central midfield.

I'd take Carroll, but i dunno if we have enough strikers. Considering Rooney's suspended for 2 games...

Carrick has never shown any form for England in the past, like a rabbit in headlights no matter what his club form at the time. I doubt he wants to be on standby either.

I'd take Adam Johnson all day long over Downing for sure. Lennon misses out them, not sure if that's surprising at all, not really, I guess.

I did say a couple of months back I thought Sturridge would miss out. We're all convinced Wellbeck to start the opening game but it may well be Defoe or even Carroll.

No need to tinkering in the friendlies, Hodge should be knowing how he wants to play and instructing the players from now until tournament and trying to get close to that in those friendlies with perhaps a Plan B element to the Belgium game

hardly an exciting squad but oh well, Woys wonder of getting the best out of an average set will see us through (and then out in the quarters)

Played well in a game vs Germany (?) iirc

How many starts has Johnson had at City this season? Can imagine if he'd been starting every game at another club he'd have probably made the squad proper.
