Haha , a lot of anger towards Sven here!
The only one of his decisions I can't understand is why Bent isn't in the squad , I think he should have been in for , maybe , Hargreaves. The fact that he isn't even on the stand by list is crazy. I think bringing Theo Walcott is a surprise , but it's a great chance for him and wil be a great experience for him , I think that flashywinger calling him "a 17 year old punk" isn't too clever because Arsene Wenger would not pay lots of money for nothing. Having listened to interviews from Theo Walcott , it seems that he is a very level headed and well spoken. I think people upset about his call up are just jealous of him and his talent.
Rooney will definetely not be fit for any part in the World Cup , the only reason that he is in the squad list is so people don't start going all crazy and saying there's no chance - Wayne Rooney will play no part in the World Cup (and coincidently this is the excuse that all England fans will make for not winning the World Cup , despite the fact that with a fully fit Rooney they wouldn't have won the World Cup anyway.)
Michaal Owen will be fully fit , there's no doubt about that. So the strikers that'll go to the World Cup will be Owen , Crouch , Walcott and Defoe (Defoe in for Rooney the day before the tournament kicks off) Even when Defoe comes in , Darren Bent should still be there , like I said before , possibly for Hargreaves.
Anyways seems like the only mistake Sven has made is not putting Darren Bent in , apart from that I don't see anything wrong with the squad , oh and Rooney being included is just clinging on to false hope , but spose you can't blame him for that , I mean the rest of the country reckons that England are 2nd favourites!!!
