England Squad for Kazakhstan and Belarus, 11 and 15 Oct 2008

England play Kazakhstan at Wembley on Saturday 11 October before traveling aboard to play Belarus next Wednesday on 15 October.

With 2 wins in their first two World Cup qualifying games England are expected to win the next two qualifiers as well, even though expectations that the wins will be in some style are probably still over the top.

England Squad:

Keepers: James (Portsmouth), Green (West Ham), Carson (West Brom)

Defenders: Brown (Manchester United), Johnson (Portsmouth), Terry (Chelsea), Ferdinand (Manchester United), Lescott (Everton), Upson (West Ham), A Cole (Chelsea), Bridge (Chelsea)

Midfielders: Beckham (Los Angeles Galaxy), Walcott (Arsenal), Barry (Aston Villa), Jenas (Tottenham), Lampard (Chelsea), Gerrard (Liverpool), Downing (Middlesbrough), Wright-Phillips (Manchester City)

Forwards: Heskey (Wigan), Crouch (Portsmouth), Rooney (Manchester United), Defoe (Portsmouth).

No Owen again, a few players miss out due to injury and overall you can expect the same starting line-up that you saw against Croatia with one or two changes expected (Rooney could sit out one game, ditto for Lampard and / or Gerrard).
