So the England team has been announced for this years Euro’s –
Goalkeepers – Joe Hart, Robert Green, John Ruddy.
Defenders – Leighton Baines, Gary Cahill, Ashley Cole, Glen Johnson, Phil Jones, Joleon Lescott, John Terry.
Midfielders – Gareth Barry, Stewart Downing, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, James Milner, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Scott Parker, Theo Walcott, Ashley Young.
Strikers – Andy Carroll, Jermain Defoe, Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck.
Standby – Jack Butland, Phil Jagielka, Jordan Henderson, Adam Johnson, Daniel Sturridge.
Im chuffed for Alex,he has been outstanding for Arsenal this year,he seem’s to play without fear and has a huge skill set matched with lightning speed.
Selected forward Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain on Arsenal’s website:
“I’m obviously delighted. To be picked for your country at any stage is a massive honour and to be at a huge tournament like the Euros is such a bonus. I think I play with no fear, I run at players regardless of who they are and try to make a difference.
“I have a youthful enthusiasm and I am so excited about this that I will try and take any opportunity with both hands.
“I will just try and make things happen, although I know there are other players who can do that. It will just be nice to get the opportunity and I will see what I can do.”
Stuart Downing is not England class,he isn’t even Liverpool class,he lacks the ability to think on his feet and if the right back drives him inside his wing play is non existent,he doesn’t have a trick or the ability to throw questions at defenders.
As for Rio Ferdinand,Roy claims that he didn’t choose Rio based on football reason’s,what a load of tosh,if it was for football reason’s he could have used Rio as a squad player,if he’s not worthy of a place in the team he’s certainly worthy of one on the bench,I would not be surprised if Rio actually pulled out,Roy omitting him from the squad saves every ones face.
