Bobby Zamora And Rio Ferdinand Recalled To England Squad For Switzerland Qualifier

Craven Cottage and Old Trafford duo will meet up with Fabio Capello for Wembley clash.

Fulham striker Bobby Zamora and Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand have both been named in the England squad for the Euro 2012 qualifier against Switzerland.

Zamora has won a recall following his return to form after a broken leg ruled him out for most of the season.

Waynbe Rooney’s suspension for the June 4 clash at Wembley has given him hope he could play some part in the crucial qualifier.

Ferdinand has been recalled for the first time since he was controversially stripped of the captaincy by manager Fabio Capello because of injury.

Capello handed back the captaincy to John Terry who Ferdinand will hope to partner in central defence.

With Ben Foster having announced he is taking a break from international football and doubts over Rob Green’s intentions, Scott Carson and David Stockdale will provide back-up to No.1 Joe Hart.

Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick is recalled to the party, while Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere is also included having been left out of Stuart Pearce’s U21 squad.

Of the squad Capello selected for the Wales game, Aaron Lennon and Matt Jarvis miss out, while Arsenal’s Theo Walcott is recalled.

Full England squad

Goalkeepers: Carson, Hart, Stockdale.

Defenders: Baines, Cahill, Cole, Ferdinand, Jagielka, Johnson, Lescott, Terry, Walker.

Midfielders: Barry, Carrick, Downing, Johnson, Lampard, Milner, Parker, Walcott, Wilshere, Young.
