Ian Holloway Names His First England Squad


Ian Holloway today named his first 26 man England squad for the friendly against Hungary in a week's time.



Holloway's first squad does include quite a few surprises as he takes iver in his first match as England manager must absently Frank Lampard has been left out of Holloway's squad.



Several players are being given the chance to win their first cap (caps correct to the FM11 default database) which include Sunderland right back Nedum Onuoha, Tottenham duo Michael Dawson and Tom Huddlestone. Other un-capped players include Gary Cahill,Kieran Gibbs, Jordan Henderson, Marc Albrighton, Jack Wilshere, Andy Carroll and Danny Wellbeck.



Theo Walcott has been handed an opportunity to redeem himself after being left out of former manager Fabio Capello's World Cup squad. The other player being given a "second chance" is West Brom keeper Scott Carson who has not played for England since that awful night at Wembley 2 years ago against Croatia where Carson let a Niko Krancjar 30 yarder slip through his hands and into the goal. Below is the squad list in full:




GOALKEEPERS




Joe Hart



Ben Foster




Scott Carson







DEFENDERS



Micah Richards




Nedum Onuoha




Phil Jagielka




Michael Dawson




John Terry




Gary Cahill




Ashley Cole




Leighton Baines




Kieran Gibbs



MIDFIELDERS



Tom Huddlestone




Gareth Barry




James Milner




Jordan Henderson




Ashley Young




Marc Albrighton




Theo Walcott




Steven Gerrard




Jack Wilshere




Adam Johnson




Stewart Downing


STRIKERS



Wayne Rooney




Andy Carroll




Danny Wellbeck

New England Captains Named


In Ian Holloway's first press conference he said he would be changing captains in this new era of English football.



Ian Holloway said that the new captain would be tireless midfielder Gareth Barry, Holloway wanted someone who gave his all and commited to England and Barry seems to fit the bill perfectly.



Holloway then went on to say that Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard would be vice-captain, as he could easily step up as captain if Barry is absent after impressing as captain when he stood in for Ferdinand at the World Cup.


So far some England fans are criticising Ian Holloway for making Barry captain as many would have prefered Gerrard to take over the role and fans were very pleased with Gerrard's performances when he stood in for ex-captain Rio Ferdinand in the World Cup.

i would have gave the two blues centre halfs a go as they're probably around the same standard as onuoha and richards but great story absolutely loving it

i could off and as the story gets further on i mite well do that. My plan is to take this story to World Cup 2018 when Rodwell will be in his prime so definitely be captain in the future
