And Theo Walcott has been lefted off:

More to come with the rest of the squad, as Cole comes on as well as Barry.

Update 1: Walcott is obviously in shock, thinking that he has played well enough to make the squad, especially with the news that it is appears that Shaun Wright-Phillips has made the team and not him. It also appears that Stephen Warnock has gotten the backup roll to Ashley Cole over Leighton Baines. So Wright-Phillips over his younger teammate Adam Johnson and Walcott.

Update 2: The squad hasn't been announced yet, so people in England are being driven nuts by when the squad will be announced.

Update 4: The full squad as expect with all the news in the morning. I guess Capello really does love himself some Gareth Barry, despite his so-so year with Manchester City and his late fitness race.

Meanwhile, a big injury concern for Chile:

Chile are sweating over the fitness of striker Humberto Suazo, who is reportedly suffering from a muscle injury.

The 29-year-old, who was top scorer in Chile's qualifying run for the world finals, suffered the problem in a 3-0 friendly win over Israel, according to reports in the country.

It is just over two weeks until Chile's first game of the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™, against Honduras.
Chile cannot afford to lose him, even if Alexi Sanchez and Mark Gonzalez are on the form they showed against Israel.
