The unlucky seven will be....

World Cup England

Huddlestone, Bent, Warnock,Carrick,Upson,Walcott,Barry

Reasons - Bent & Barry injured and won't recover in time. Huddlestone & Warnock were always on the fringe in any case, just rewarded for club form. Upson won't go as Dawson & King are sufficient cover with the potential of being used together also. Carrick has lost form completely. Walcott of little use now that SWP & Johnson can be used as impact subs.

Bent is fit -- says that he will be fir for Sunday's game against Japan and may he will recover in time -- it's only a small strain on it -- out for 2 days...picked up it on Sunday so will be fit today...

Walcott of little use yet SWP is?! Walcott has that rare commodity which defences hate - pace. I thought he was fairly decent against Mexico. Dawson will not replace Upson and I am just hoping Barry is fit as we are stuffed otherwise.

Walcott will go as Capello seems to like his pace (even though he has no end product or skill, like A.Johnson does who should be always starting imo).

Barry will go if fit; Parker will be dropped if he is.

Agree with rest, although I think Bent deserves to go as he was the 3rd top scorer in the prem this season. He is much better than heskey in ones opinion.
