Wright: Capello Should Pick Derbs
Former England International (and Arsenal legend) Ian Wright has said that Fabio Capello SHOULD pick players like Blackburn Rovers striker Matt Derbyshire in his first England squad.
Capello will announce his first England squad since taking over from Steve McClaren on Saturday and Wright is hoping that he will make a few surprise announcements with this, that would freshen things up for England, something that Wright feels he will do, as he is not afraid to shake things up. One such inclusion he feels should be Derbyshire.
Wright wrote in his column in the Sun: "Like me, he came into the game from non-league and, while he's not made too many starts this season, I like the look of him.
"He's played for the Under-21s and done well. I think he's one of those players who will develop quickly if he's given a few call-ups to the international side, where he can learn from people like Michael Owen. At this stage, Capello will be looking at the attitude of the younger players he brings in, whether it's Derbyshire, 21, or someone else, and they will have to seize this fantastic opportunity."
It would be superb if Derbs were to be named in this England squad, hopefully Capello thinks along the same lines as Wrighty?!?!
