    Daws in England squad

    07 August 2010



    Michael Dawson has been named in a 23-man England squad for Wednesday night's friendly with Hungary on Wednesday.
    Fabio Capello's men will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing World Cup campaign this summer.
    Defender 'Daws' was part of the squad in South Africa but did not feature at the tournament, meaning he is still looking to win his first senior international cap.
    Squad in full:
    Goalkeepers
    Ben Foster (Birmingham)
    Joe Hart (Man City)
    Paul Robinson (Blackburn)
    Defenders
    Wes Brown (Man Utd)
    Gary Cahill (Bolton)
    Ashley Cole (Chelsea)
    Michael Dawson (Spurs)
    Kieran Gibbs (Arsenal)
    Phil Jagielka (Everton)
    Glen Johnson (Liverpool)
    John Terry (Chelsea)
    Midfielders
    Gareth Barry (Man City)
    Steven Gerrard (Liverpool)
    Adam Johnson (Man City)
    Frank Lampard (Chelsea)
    James Milner (Aston Villa)
    Ashley Young (Aston Villa)
    Theo Walcott (Arsenal)
    Jack Wilshere (Arsenal)
    Forwards
    Darren Bent (Sunderland)
    Carlton Cole (West Ham)
    Wayne Rooney (Man Utd)
    Bobby Zamora (Fulham)

    The squad looks a lot lot better than the plane full of crap we took to South Africa but my one qualm is with the strikers, where's Defoe, you know Cappello the one striker than actually scored.

    True, would rather we had non you know, rest of the leagues players are tiring themselves out in training and playing that pointless friendly while all our's apart from Daws will be focused totally on the Manc game.

    I think it will count in our favour that Defoe isn't in the squad...we need our players to be fully fit in time for our game against Man City...

    Harry must be well pleased that only Daws is picked , he probably won't get a full game anyhow .

    I know I'm pleased .

    No Lennon or Huddlestone which good for us but Im sure the boys would have wanted to play.

    I think putting Wilksire straight into the squad after him not getting in there through performances will backfire on yas.

    Carrick pulls out of the England squad 'due to injury' then plays for Utd three days before the England game hahahahahahahahahahahaha These friendlies are a complete waste of time and everybody knows it ........ it's just the FA and Wembley making money ........ Spain played 5 friendly's in 2009 and 4 in 2010 and they won the WC .... England played the same and were shite friendlies make no difference ........

    Hungary were the first non-British team to beat England at Wembley (but they weren't the first Foreign team to beat England on English soil as is commonly believed - that honour went to Ireland at Goodison Park in 1949).


    Spurs legend Vivian Woodward scored seven goals for England in the first three matches played against Hungary in 1908 & 1909, including four in one match.
    Wednesday's game will be the 22nd between England and Hungary.

    This is about England at the end of the day. England have to rebuiled and the premier league has to help by getting English players coming through the system. What's the use of having a national team if they just want to contrate on maximising their huge profits at the expese of the our national team.

    Whoever is in charge is gonna find it hard. Clubs think more about the CL than international football.

    That's why the Premiership has introduced the home grown rule to help encourage English players and discourage clubs from buying foreign players...

    Its kind of weird to quit but I am glad Paul RObinson quit because he is a great player and he just had confidence issues. Hopefully it will help his club form to be aggressive to the nation.

    As for Daws everyone knows he loves England and he is a good pick. It is better to have a good passionate player than a brilliant lazy one. Plus he is a friendly guy that young and old people can look up for.

    I'm gonna have to disagree wiv ya 'bout Robinson. He is not a great keeper. slightly above average i would say. We bought him from a relegated team Leeds.
    Dawson i can see ending up eventually as Tottenham and England captain if Tottenham become sucessful.

    Dawson will get a big boost from getting his first cap and I'd love for him to get his motor running. Just no silly injuries please
