That is even with two names not going. Can't believe they actually took Gerrard and Terry. Lampard... well I suppose he should be a bench warmer at best but England got lucky that Barry got injured. And Rio Ferdinand.
They should have taken Caulker instead of Terry, and Glen Johnson? All I can do is

* Anybody but Ingerland.
Realistically, despite the put downs, anti press and negativety surrounding englands chances, i have a feeling this might just be your year. Do a chelsea, utter mince for 90 minutes and win it somehow.
I used to always be secretly optimistic about England's chances in a tournament, but since 2010 I just haven't cared. Starting to find a few reasons to regain my secret optimism.
Cahill ruled out and Kelly in as a replacement.
Richards should surely be in before Kelly and why not ask Rio.....footballing reasons......haha
can only blame richards himself for that. he didn't want to be back-up so blew the chance himself. with that attitude he may have blown his england future as well.
as for rio, didn't want him there really in the st place as not good enough nowadays. however, with the lack of other options i'm suprised he didn't get called when cahill was out. with the response i've seen on the sky news ticker from his representatives i don't think rio will ever play for england again. calling hodgson & fa disgraceful and lacking respect.
Maybe ferdinand should have replaced cahill but his advisor has ruined his chances now saying that and he will never play england ever again
