Squad for Hungary Friendly – 2nd Update

Goalkeepers: Ben Foster (Birmingham), Joe Hart (Manchester City), Paul Robinson (Blackburn)  – although Sporting Life is reporting on Sunday morning that Robinson has withdrawn from the squad and announced his retirement from international football.

On Sunday, Wes Brown did the same thing as Robinson – presumably fed up with being a reserve, he’s also retired from international football. I’m actually beginning to wonder if this is a sign of widespread disatisfaction by the players about the way the team is heading in – it’s almost insulting to be left out of the World Cup squad but to be included in the squad for a pre-season friendly which no-one really cares about.

Defenders: Gary Cahill (Bolton), Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Michael Dawson (Tottenham Hotspur), Kieran Gibbs (Arsenal), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Glen Johnson (Liverpool), John Terry (Chelsea)

Midfielders: Gareth Barry (Manchester City), Steven Gerrard (Liverpool), Adam Johnson (Manchester 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 United), Wayne Rooney (Manchester United), Bobby Zamora (Fulham)
