England Call Upon Gary Neville

Posted by Keano! on May 24, 2009

Gary Neville has been re-called up to the England setup with the squad for South Africa in mind. The United right back who has suffered several injuries over the recent months is looking to regain some of his form at club level.

Its Neville’s first call up under Fabio Capello and the aging defender will want to prove a point in what will be his last major International tournament should England be in South Africa next Summer.

Neville who lifted the Premier League trophy recently for United at Old Trafford will be in the squad to face Andorra and Kazakhstan in the qualifiers for the World Cup.

When some think of Neville and England nowadays, they think back to that horrid night in Croatia where his back pass bobbled over a piece of loose turf, and over the swinging foot of Paul Robinson and rolled into the empty net, but Neville is confident he can put in some sturdy performances in the England shirt.

The squad in full picked by Capello is as follows with the United players highlighted,

Squad: 

Goalkeepers
Rob Green (West Ham), Paul Robinson (Blackburn Rovers), Scott Carson (West Bromwich Albion)

Defenders
Wayne Bridge (Manchester City), Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Rio Ferdinand (Manchester United), Glen Johnson (Portsmouth), Joleon Lescott (Everton), Gary Neville (Manchester United), John Terry (Chelsea), Matthew Upson (West Ham)

Midfielders
Gareth Barry (Aston Villa), David Beckham (AC Milan), Michael Carrick (Manchester United), Steven Gerrard (Liverpool), Frank Lampard (Chelsea), Theo Walcott (Arsenal), Shaun Wright-Phillips (Manchester City), Ashley Young (Aston Villa)

Forwards
Carlton Cole (West Ham), Peter Crouch (Portsmouth), Jermain Defoe (Tottenham Hotspur), Emile Heskey (Aston Villa), Wayne Rooney (Manchester United).

A few United players who have missed out through injury, or not playing much lately include Owen Hargreaves, Ben Foster and Wes Brown.
