Fabio Capello calls up Kevin Davies


England head coach Fabio Capello has called up veteran Bolton Wanderers striker Kevin Davies to his squad for the European Championship qualifier against Montenegro a week on Tuesday.

Thirty-three-year-old Davies has long been touted as a possible England player, but his chances of a call-up seemed to have gone after he was ignored by several managers.

However, he may now get a chance to finally earn a first full cap, being named in the squad alongside Wayne Rooney and Arsenal starlet Jack Wilshere.

Capello is wary of the threat posed by the Montenegrins, saying:“I saw these two games that they played, they played very well and are a dangerous team.

“They defend well and are really compact, they play the counter-attack really, really fast. The quality of their forwards is really good.”

Squad: Ben Foster (Birmingham City), Robert Green (West Ham United), Joe Hart (Manchester City).

Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Glen Johnson (Liverpool), Rio Ferdinand (Manchester United), Joleon Lescott (Manchester City), John Terry (Chelsea), Stephen Warnock (Aston Villa).

Gareth Barry (Manchester City), Joe Cole (Liverpool), Steven Gerrard (Liverpool), Tom Huddlestone (Tottenham Hotspur), Adam Johnson (Manchester City), Aaron Lennon (Tottenham Hotspur), Jack Wilshere (Arsenal), Shaun Wright-Phillips (Manchester City), Ashley Young (Aston Villa).

Darren Bent (Sunderland), Peter Crouch (Tottenham Hotspur), Kevin Davies (Bolton Wanderers), Wayne Rooney (Manchester United).
