Fabio Capello has named his 23 man squad for the World Cup and there are a lot of surprises to be seen. There are also four decisions that I completely disagree with.

  1. The exclusion of Theo Walcott.
  2. The inclusion of Emile Heskey.
  3. The inclusion of Stephen Warnock ahead of Leighton Baines.
  4. The exclusion of Darren Bent.
How Fabio Capello can leave Walcott out is a joke. There are few players with the pace, skill, trickery and finishing of Walcott. This was evident in the hat-trick he scored against Croatia and although he has been struggling with injuries the past few years, surely he should be getting in ahead of Wright-Phillips.

Also, after Baines starting in the games against Egypt and Japan, surely he would have been chosen ahead of Warnock. If Ashley Cole was to get injured, I would much prefer to have Baines as cover.

Finaly, how a donkey like Emile Heskey can be chosen before Darren Bent is a joke! Bent scored 24 league goals this season against Heskey's 3. I know people say he's great to play alongside, but that's why Crouch is there.

Goalkeepers: Joe Hart (Manchester City), David James (Portsmouth), Rob Green (West Ham);

Defenders: Jamie Carragher (Liverpool), Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Rio Ferdinand (Manchester United), Glen Johnson (Liverpool), Ledley King (Spurs), John Terry (Chelsea), Matthew Upson (West Ham), Stephen Warnock (Aston Villa);

Midfielders: Gareth Barry (Manchester City), Michael Carrick (Manchester United), Joe Cole (Chelsea), Steven Gerrard (Liverpool), Frank Lampard (Chelsea), Aaron Lennon (Spurs), James Milner (Aston Villa), Shaun Wright-Phillips (Manchester City);

Forwards: Peter Crouch (Spurs), Jermain Defoe (Spurs), Emile Heskey (Aston Villa), Wayne Rooney (Manchester United).
