Capello includes Welbeck in England for international friendly

Posted on by SoccerPunter

England manager Fabio Capello on Saturday handed Manchester United striker Danny Welbeck the opportunity to stamp his international credentials in Wednesday’s international friendly against World Cup runners-up Holland.

The 20-year-old, who made his debut in the game against Ghana in March, was named in a 25-man squad which was missing fellow strikers, Jermain Defoe of Tottenham and Aston Villa’s Darren Bent.

There are eleven players in the squad who could potentially be involved in The FA Community Shield at Wembley on Sunday, with six players from FA Cup winners Manchester City and five from English Premier League Champions Manchester United.

Manchester City defender Micah Richards comes into the squad in the absence of Glen Johnson.

Ashley Young, who scored on England’s last outing, a 2-2 draw with Switzerland, has since joined United to increase the champions’ numbers in the England squad.

Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere was also included by Capello despite doubts over his fitness while there were also calls for Fulham goalkeeper David Stockdale and Tottenham defender Kyle Walker.

Goalkeepers:
Robert Green (West Ham), Joe Hart (Man City), David Stockdale (Fulham)

Defenders:
Leighton Baines (Everton), Gary Cahill (Bolton), Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Rio Ferdinand (Man Utd), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Joleon Lescott (Man City), Micah Richards (Man City), John Terry (Chelsea), Kyle Walker (Tottenham)

Midfielders:
Gareth Barry (Man City), Michael Carrick (Man Utd), Stewart Downing (Liverpool), Adam Johnson (Man City), Frank Lampard (Chelsea), James Milner (Man City), Scott Parker (West Ham), Jack Wilshere (Arsenal), Ashley Young (Man Utd)

Strikers:
Andy Carroll (Liverpool), Peter Crouch (Tottenham), Wayne Rooney (Man Utd), Danny Welbeck (Man Utd)
