…and there was much rejoicing?

Here’s a look at England’s provisional squad for the international friendly against France.

James (Portsmouth), Carson (Aston Villa), Kirkland (Wigan); Bridge (Chelsea), A Cole (Chelsea), Johnson (Portsmouth), Terry (Chelsea), Brown (Man Utd), Lescott (Everton), Ferdinand (Man Utd), Wheater (Middlesbrough), Woodgate (Tottenham), Upson (West Ham); Barry (Aston Villa), Young (Aston Villa), Bentley (Blackburn), J Cole (Chelsea), Lampard (Chelsea), Wright-Phillips (Chelsea), Beckham (Los Angeles Galaxy), Gerrard (Liverpool), Hargreaves (Man Utd), Downing (Middlesbrough), Jenas (Tottenham); Walcott (Arsenal), Agbonlahor (Aston Villa), Crouch (Liverpool), Rooney (Man Utd), Owen (Newcastle), Defoe (Portsmouth)

There are a few tasty choices in there- David Wheater, the oft maligned Jermaine Defoe, and Theo Walcott are interesting inclusions.  There was no room for Spur’s Paul Robinson or Manchester United’s Michael Carrick this time around.

After a long look through the squad, who do you think is going to be in the starting XI, and who will get a sub? For bonus points: Who’s going to wear the captain’s armband?
