England's squad announced: Sven turns into risk-taker, picking Walcott and Lennon!

Theo Walcott!!! Just four strikers and no Darren Bent or Jermain Defoe! No Sean Wright-Phillips! Aaron Lennon! No Ledley King! Owen Hargreaves! Sven has ditched his conservative image and taken chances by selecting a fast, attacking squad. Good on him. Click below to see the full squad…

GK: Paul Robinson, David James, Rob Green

DF: Gary Neville, Rio Ferdinand, John Terry, Ashley Cole, Sol Campbell, Wayne Bridge, Jamie Carragher

MD: David Beckham, Michael Carrick, Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard, Stewart Downing, Jermaine Jenas, Owen Hargreaves, Aaron Lennon, Joe Cole

An attractive, attacking squad, I think. Well done Sven for taking a chance on Walcott.
