Pompey trio in England squad

Pompey trio in England squad

David James, Glen Johnson and Jermain Defoe have all been called into the 30 man provisional England squad for the friendly with France in Paris next week.

Fabio Capello will once again trim this squad to 23 players on Saturday night, but hopefully Johnson will this time make the final cut, rather than be cut, whereas Defoe came in as a late replacement shortly after signing for us last time.

The main thing, should all 3 make it into the squad and/or play a part against France is injuries are avoided, as we have our biggest game in years coming up shortly after this - in case you have forgotten or have been on another planet that game will be the FA cup semi final…

PLAY UP POMPEY!

I expect Johnson to start as the only other Right Back is Brown and he is not playing well. Three players in the England squad are we dreaming - pulls out needle - no definitely not.

A great reflcetion on us all. Let's hope they are on the pitch at the same time, has it happened before? Then safely home, it's only a friendly after all.

Sure is a disgrace. Still we can play our Cup side and practice things before Wembley.
