    World Cup squad?

    23 man squad would be:

    D. James
    J. Hart
    R. Green

    R. Ferdinand (C)
    J. Terry
    A. Cole
    W. Brown
    G. Johnson
    L. Baines
    J. Lescott

    F. Lampard
    S. Gerrard
    G. Barry
    M. Carrick
    J. Milner
    J. Cole
    T. Walcott
    A. Lennon
    D. Bentley

    W. Rooney
    J. Defoe
    P. Crouch (Zamora has looked quality recently but no1 has international scoring record like crouchy)
    C. Cole

    B. Foster, L. King, G. Neville, A. Johnson, O. Hargreaves, B. Zamora and D. Bent would have completed my 30 man squad but then left out when trimmed to 23. I've sacrificed King for an extra midfielder though (Bentley).

    Starting XI would have to b as follows:

    D. James (Purely for experience in a WORLD Cup... Hart is def. 1 for the future though)

    A. Cole
    J. Terry
    R. Ferdinand
    G. Johnson (Against weaker teams but would prob switch to more defensive option such as Brown for the tougher games)

    J. Milner
    F. Lampard
    G. Barry
    S. Gerrard
    T. Walcott

    W. Rooney

        DEF:
        Johnson
        Brown
        Terry
        Ferdinand
        Upson
        Lescott
        Cole

        Have gone with only 7 defenders to give us an extra midfielder.

        Brown can play both centre back and right back and lescott can play both left back and right back so we basically have two players for each position still. Throw in Barry who can play left back as well we still have 4 players capable of making up a decent back 4 if all of the 1st choice players are not available.

        MID:
        Lennon
        Walcott
        Gerrard
        Lampard
        Barry
        Cole
        Milner
        Young
        Adam Johnson

        FOR:
        Rooney
        Defoe
        Crouch
        Heskey (as lex said, him and Rooney play well together)

        Starting 11 would be:

        GK: James
        RB: Johnson
        CB: Terry
        CB: Ferdinand
        LB: Cole
        RM: Lennon
        CM: Gerrard
        CM: Barry
        LM: Milner
        FOR: Rooney
        FOR: Crouch

        7 man bench:
        Hart, Lescott, Lampard, Walcott, Young, Defoe, Heskey
