Gooner In England Call Up Shocker

Gooner In England Call Up Shocker

The fabric of the footballing universe was shaken to it's core today as an Arsenal player was named in the England squad.

In an unprecedented move that has made Fabio Cappello the laughing stock of the managers association, the Italian has had the nerve to pick an Arsenal player for the up coming friendly against France.

Extensive research has started into Theo Walcott's background as officials strive to prove that the pacey striker isn't English.

Meanwhile the 19 year old is delighted with the call up.

"I celebrated my 19th birthday on Sunday. So the call-up is a great birthday present for me. I`m looking forward to meeting up with all of the lads after the weekend`s game". said the ENGLISHMAN.

A few days in the company of Lumplard, Cashley and Stevie Me. Sigh, he was really starting to show promise as well.

Hopefully he gets to play 5 mins when England are trailing France, then he sets up a goal for Rooney (who else) to equalise, saving Capello's face and ruining Domenech's day. Whether I want to see Capello's stern face or Domenech's animated protests, I don't know.

Lou, he could set up a goal for Crouch instead. :) Actually, wait, you're right, it has to be for Rooney if it's going in.
Cheese.
