United - 3 In and 3 Out!

United - 3 In and 3 Out!

Fabio Capello released, as required by FIFA, his provisional squad of 30 for the 2010 World Cup today.

The listing contains the names of Rio Ferdinand, Michael Carrick and Wayne Rooney but there are several notable United omissions.

There is no room for Gary Neville or Wes Brown with Fabio strangely preferring the option of bringing Jamie Carragher out of international retirement to cover at right back while the media hyped talk of Owen Hargreaves being named has proven to be misplaced with Owen, who has only played for 30 seconds this season, not surprisingly being left out.

It remains to be seen who`ll make the reduced squad of 23 that will be going to the tournament in South Africa!

None of those players would add to the team, Brown, Hargreaves, Neville and Carragher either haven't played enough or lack the legs for such a high profile tournament. No room for sentiment.

The reason for Carraghers selection is obvious. In a 23 man squad you CANNOT take more than 8 defenders. When two of your 4 centre backs have the fitness records of Ledley King and Rio Ferdinand you'd be a fool not to want extra cover. Carragher is being selected because alonside Upson (possibly dawson) he can cover for the two injury prone centre backs as well as cover right back if needed. Micah Richards or Wes Brown could have done the same but are more error prone and would likely not have had the required mental strength to deal with the high pressure situation of replacing the defence in an injury crisis. Carragher has big enough shoulders to handle it.

all very good points but Carragher chose not to represent England - a cardinal sin in my book!
