2010 FIFA World Cup: With England's Roster, the Last Cut Is the Deepest

Today, Fabio Capello made his final decisions and chose England's 23-man squad for the World Cup. In the process, Capello made some questionable decisions, like leaving out Theo Wolcott.

Below is England's roster.

Goalkeepers:
Robert Green, Joe Hart, David James

Defenders:

Jamie Carragher, Ashley Cole, Rio Ferdinand, Glen Johnson, Ledley King, John Terry, Matthew Upson, Stephen Warnock

Midfielders:

Gareth Barry, Michael Carrick, Joe Cole, Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard, Aaron Lennon, James Milner, Shaun Wright-Phillips

Forwards:

Peter Crouch, Jermain Defoe, Emile Heskey, Wayne Rooney

Capello's decisions have far-reaching effects, well beyond the seven players omitted.

In the next few slides, I will evaluate the winners and losers of Capello's selection and what they mean for England's World Cup chances.
