Bridge in, Beattie out.

Wayne Bridge returns to the squad after injury. While the London hacks might like to pretend he's there because Cole is injured, Wayne merits a place in the squad purely on merit.

The bad news is that James Beattie, the top English scorer in the Premiership has been left out. It's an even bigger slap in the face to see the names of Jeffers and Heskey there instead.

England squad: James (West Ham), Robinson (Leeds), Wright (Everton); G Neville (Man Utd), Mills (Leeds), Bridge (Southampton), Ferdinand (Man Utd), Campbell (Arsenal), Southgate (Middlesbrough), Woodgate (Newcastle), Terry (Chelsea); Beckham (Man Utd), Scholes (Man Utd), Butt (Man Utd), Gerrard (Liverpool), Murphy (Liverpool), Dyer (Newcastle), Jenas (Newcastle), Hargreaves (Bayern Munich), Lampard (Chelsea); Owen (Liverpool), Heskey (Liverpool), Vassell (Aston Villa), Jeffers (Arsenal), Rooney (Everton).
