England team news... including; Terry, Carson, Robinson and Beckham !!!

England and Chelsea captain, John Terry has expressed his desperation to return for England's crunch tie against Croatia in Wembley on Wednesday, and the 26 year old's dream may just come through after rejoining the squad on Sunday night.

I'm sure if Terry feels fully fit, McClaren won't hesitate to put him in. However the England boss has not decided yet on whether David Beckham will play in the crucial Euro 2008 qualifier, or whether Paul Robinson will be recalled for Scott Carson.
Peter Crouch has said today that he feels up for the lone role and that he thinks he can handle the pressure, some of which should be relieved by the probable presence of his Liverpool team mate Steven Gerrard who is expected to play in the supporting role.
McClaren has warned his players to remember what happened against Greece in 2001 and has pleaded to them not to let it go down to the wire this time around. And whats this? Support for Steve McClaren. After a survey for the BBC's Inside Sport, it seems that fans have backed the 46 year old to stay on as England coach and blamed the players for recent poor performances... That's ironic because somehow I don't think it would be the England players getting the chop should they not qualify on Wednesday.

Who do you think should start for England on Wednesday???
