Capello names squad for Switzerland qualifier

Fabio Capello has named his squad for next month's Euro 2012 qualifier against Switzerland at Wembley.  As expected, Robert Green is excluded from the squad, after hinting that he did not wish to be involved, which has left the door open for West Bromwich Albion goal keeper Scott Carson to be recalled.  Fulham's David Stockdale is the third choice keeper behind Hart and Carson.

Bobby Zamora, Jermain Defoe, Darren Bent and Peter Crouch make up the four man strike force, with Wayne Rooney suspended and Andy Carroll injured.

Rio Ferdinand is recalled - his first call up since losing the captaincy.  He is expected to partner John Terry at the back.  Whilst Theo Walcott is also recalled as Matt Jarvis and Aaron Lennon miss out.

England's squad for their Euro 2012 qualifier against Switzerland at Wembley on Saturday June 4:

Carson (West Brom), Hart (Man City), Stockdale (Fulham); Baines (Everton), Cahill (Bolton), Cole (Chelsea), Ferdinand (Man Utd), Jagielka (Everton), G Johnson (Liverpool), Lescott (Man City), Terry (Chelsea), Walker (Tottenham); Barry (Man City), Carrick (Man Utd), Downing (Aston Villa), A Johnson (Man City), Lampard (Chelsea), Milner (Man City), Parker (West Ham), Walcott (Arsenal), Wilshere (Arsenal), A Young (Aston Villa); Bent (Aston Villa), Crouch (Tottenham), Defoe (Tottenham), Zamora (Fulham)

Love to see England play with Walcott and Johnson and leave Lampard out.

Out of the squad with the exception of Defoe who pulled out would be

Johnson - Terry - Cahill - Baines


Walcott - Carrick - Witshire - Johnson
