Capello calls on Sturridge (finally!)
Fabio Capello has handed Daniel Sturridge and Everton's Jack Rodwell - a rumoured future target for Chelsea - their first England call-ups for the upcoming friendlies against Spain and Sweden. Sturridge has enjoyed a successful 2011, spending time on loan at Bolton last season before forcing his way into the first-team reckoning at Chelsea, and Capello has been impressed by his development. "He's an interesting player and a player who scores goals," Capello said. "I saw him play right wing, left wing and centre forward. He has improved a lot." Sturridge is joined in the England party by regulars John Terry, Frank Lampard and Ashley Cole.
