Maybe someone could explain to me why we need 3 left backs, and also how on earth Alan Smith gets into every England squad, as I am really quite baffled!

Cole, Bridge, Shorey plus Phil Neville, Lescott and Barry, that makes 6 players in the squad who can play at LB. At least Jenas doesn't get included anymore.

Young desrerves to start in the friendly. Joe Cole should be rested for the Croatia game. (Not that the result matters now anyway!)

fair play to your boys, gotta be said tho they are included becuase they deserve to be there. esp barry(even if he has kept lamps out) well done letshope it continues! but it'd be nice to see lamps and barry get a full game together see how that works

Doesn't matter how many left backs we have, unless Israel pull off a miracle, we are out!

Great to see Villa's youngsters recognised. Hopefully fire them up for Sunday! Am I being totally biased or shouldn't Gabby have been included in the Senior squad rather than Alan Smith? If not Gabby, then Theo Walcott should have been, but Alan Smith is, in my opinion, not good enough for International football.
