Kevin Davies in the team for European Championship qualification

>> Tuesday, October 5, 2010

Bolton striker Kevin Davies was taken by England, a week after admitting he had hoped his country represented.

Before Bolton in the Premier League draw with Manchester United last weekend, Davis said of his England ambitions dissatisfied.

"I was in the team expanded to a few times, but even if a few players out and I thought I had a chance, someone called me," he told ESPN.

He did not know at the time that Capello was now watching.

And while Wayne Rooney was given the green light for the team to join, with Bobby Zamora and Gabriel Agbonlahor ruled out through injury and Andy Carroll bypass after a recent dip in form in Newcastle, Davies was driven in the queue waiting.

Fabio Capello's squad for the Euro 2012 qualifier with Montenegro at Wembley next Tuesday is littered with surprises, including facts about Joe Cole, Robert Green, Rio Ferdinand, John Terry and Aaron Lennon.

Team in full:

Ben Foster (Birmingham City), Robert (West Ham) Green, Joe Hart (Manchester City), Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Phil Jagielka (Everton), Glen Johnson (Liverpool), Joleon Lescott Rio Ferdinand (Manchester United), (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), Wayne Rooney ( Manchester United)
