THE England Squad for the Euro 2012 championships have been announced. Sadly, no Joey Barton. The chance to see Barton do what England fans want – fight the opposition and tweet about what a twat everyone else is – has been overlooked. Can England still win? Unhelpfully, Germany will be stronger than ever, having taken over  Greece and reaping a 90% share of any win bonuses for Portugal, Spain and Ireland.

But with a good wind and a tall player up front, England can do as well as ever they did (oh no!).

The full team England is: Joe Hart, Rob Green, John Ruddy; Glen Johnson, Phil Jones, John Terry, Joleon Lescott, Gary Cahill, Ashley Cole, Leighton Baines; Theo Walcott, Stewart Downing, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Steven Gerrard, Gareth Barry, Frank Lampard, Scott Parker, Ashley Young, James Milner; Jermain Defoe, Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck, Andy Carroll.

Captain is Steven Gerrard. Hate figure is John Terry. Just there for the Duty Free is Andy Carroll.


Every team needs a song. So here’s an oldies but a goodie. Take it away Jimmy Greaves:
