Five Villans For Capello

Five Villans For Capello

The future's not just bright for Villa, it looks like a Claret and Blue England could be in the offing following Fabio Capello's choice of players for his first ever England side.

Gabby Agbonlahor and Curtis Davies are called up for their first full squad appearances, and joining them are Scott Carson, Gareth Barry and Ashley Young.

The 5 players have been named in Capello's provisional squad to face Switzerland next Wednesday in his first friendly in charge.

The Italian manager will then look at the squad before making a final decision on Saturday.

Surely that is a signal to any young English footballer (Defoe possibly!) looking for a new team that Villa Park is the place to be if you want International football. Come on MON. Strike!

Mixed feelings over the inclusion of 5 villa players. More chance of one of them picking up an injury VS the experience they'll gain from international duty. Delighted for Gabby tho, he deserves his place in the squad!

I think it's great that you can get 5 into the squad. How much of this do you think is down to MON? It's looking go for you guys at the moment.
