  1. Why is Heskey on the roster?!?! I could have sworn that Darren Bent easily earned his place on the squad. I understand that he’s big and has a good aerial game and everything, but he doesn’t score at all! Rooney already does enough by himself.

  2. When Heskey plays, England plays well. I think it is a smart move. He knows this level of play as well. One of the few moves of Capello that I actually agree with.
