Can't understand why he is taking Shaun Wright-Phillips as he has no strength on the ball and is too easily tackled.
As for England winning the World Cup....well it is possible if we stay injury free and play to our best. However I feel with sides such as Brazil, Argentina, Spain, Italy, Germany, etc, we will need some good fortune.

Maybe a 'handy' goal with blind officials!!.

Beckham needs to gracefully retire, his England playing days are over surley now.

I would have taken Beck's as a sub though.

There needs to be a bit of focus on blooding some of those left behind after the WC. Get them some experience and a chance to show what they are about at this level.

Cannot hang on to Lamps, Terry, Gerrard etc. That is when real managers show their metal - dumping the higher profile players.

I'm just surprised Capello got so many choices wrong, in my opinion. Ok say Upson over Dawson you could argue about international experience although I still think it was a bad choice. But to also pick SWP over Adam Johnson, Heskey over Bent, Carrick over Walcott. In my opinion the only one he got right was Baines!

What he has done is severely limit the options he has. Now, Plan A must work immediately and all players in that plan must stay fit.

Still the squad is what it is and it's time to get 100% behind the boys!

In saying that, James' comments today worry me. I know other keepers have complained about the ball but he sounds like he's already making excuses. Really hope Joe Hart gets the nod.

If you're questioning why he chose Carrick over Walcott, you probably forfeit your right to have an opinion

Not at all. We already have Barry, Lampard, Gerrard and Milner to play in the middle of the park. No need for another centre mid especially Carrick who has had a poor season (and i'm a utd fan!). The squad would have much better options if we had Walcott instead.

I'm shocked he's taken Upson over Dawson. Capello has flat out lied when he said he would pick player's on their form.

Well if we're talking dark horses they're about the top bunch of youngsters around.
