Emile Heskey Makes England Squad

Wigan Athletic striker Emile Heskey has been named in the England squad announced today to face the Czech Republic in a friendly at Wembley on Wednesday.

England manager Fabio Capella was at Upton Park today to watch the big man in action today as the Latics lost their opening game of the season once again.

Capella is calling for goals to come from all over his team and he said:

'You have to play in a different style - the other players they have to score more goals'

'It's a problem everywhere - Italy so-so in attack, Germany so-so. Only Torres is a big striker in this moment in the world."

'Portugal, no. Also the French, you didn't see anything at Euro 2008. It's a big problem now because the teams defend very well.'

The full squad is:

Goalkeepers: David James (Portsmouth), Paul Robinson (Blackburn Rovers), Joe Hart (Manchester City)

Defenders: Wayne Bridge (Chelsea), Wes Brown (Manchester United), Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Rio Ferdinand (Manchester United), Glen Johnson (Portsmouth), John Terry (Chelsea), Matthew Upson (West Ham United), Jonathan Woodgate (Tottenham Hotspur)

Midfielders: Steven Gerrard (Liverpool), Gareth Barry (Aston Villa), Michael Carrick (Manchester United), Joe Cole (Chelsea), David Bentley (Tottenham Hotspur), Frank Lampard (Chelsea),David Beckham (LA Galaxy), Stewart Downing (Middlesbrough)

Forwards: Wayne Rooney (Manchester United), Jermain Defoe(Portsmouth), Theo Walcott (Arsenal), Emile Heskey (Wigan Athletic)
