SWP Expected To Start For England

Manchester City's very own Shaun Wright-Phillips is expected to start in Saturday's England World Cup qualifier against Kazakhstan.

Three Lions boss Fabio Capello is expected to field the following starting 11.

James, Johnson, Ferdinand, Brown, A Cole, Lampard, Barry, Wright-Phillips, Gerrard, Rooney, Heskey.

Much better Merlin, the closet City fan! Like he says, he has come home. We loaned him to Chelski just to get his hunger back. Now he is back at City, and he'll become a legend.

Merlin. SWP is a better player for spending time at the Bridge despite being restricted and not really given his chance. He says he has improved for being at Chelsea so you won't hear City fans who know and trust him doubt that at all. But Manchester City will see the best of him. He is Back, Better and ready to show his Best!

Hope he does get a chance to show his worth. Good luck to him and the rest of the team!

The man who has an opportunity this weekend is Capello. Is he going to show some of the courage he was renowned for before he came to England? The man who would make his own mind up? I hope so. Because if he starts with SWP he will have signalled to the football world that the players who are in form, with the most skill and commitment, will get their opportunity. We will see.

Will be annoyed if Theo Walcott gets the nod over SWP.

Be ridiculous if Crapello chooses Walcott over SWP.
