Terry and Campbell i think.

Sol has been rock solid at the last few international tournaments and Rio has been looking at bit shakey as of late.

Terry is just world class and a first choice starter for sure.

On current form it should actually be Carragher and King at Centre-Back, I think. However we've got so many good centre backs at the moment I think we should be playing three of them and then King in the holding midfield role as well.
I don't think I can recall one good game Terry has had for England though. He seemed to be marking fresh air and ball watching again on Saturday, just doesn't look the same player if he's not playing next to Gallas.
My England XI for Germany providing everyone is fit (and Ferdinand's poor form continues and Terry still doesn't manage to replicate his club form) would be as follows:
P.Robinson
S.Campbell J.Carragher J.Woodgate
G.Neville A.Cole
S.Gerrard L.King F.Lampard
W.Rooney M.Owen

What has Woodgate done good lately to be starter?

he's just torn his hamstring again apparently. that guy is just too injury prone to be an international regular.

He's too injury prone to be a footballer full stop. I recently read somewhere Beckham was to double his efforts to learn Spanish, because Woodgate could already speak fluently, Christ the time he's had off Woodgate should be fluent in every language in the world.

I'd still argue that Woodgate is actually the most accomplished Centre-Back England have. He's not occasionally careless (Ferdinand) and he can pass the ball further than ten yards (Campbell). As far as the World Cup goes at most he needs to stay fit for seven games which he can manage.

Contrary to popular belief (whilst their decision to sign Beckham over Ronaldinho was moronic in football terms it made perfect financial sense) Real Madrid are not stupid. They paid a lot of money for Woodgate because he is a very good player, if they'd wanted Campbell or Ferdinand they could have had them, they didn't, they wanted Woodgate which given his injuries only further shows how highly they rate him. He's very well liked in Madrid and as soon as he gets a decent run everyone will be talking about him.

Maybe he's learnt Spanish because he's not as thick or lazy as another nameless Englishman at Real Madrid.

It's funny when the guys from England talk about football...You have one of the worst teams in Europe (face it, that's a fact) and your players go and ask for bonus if they take the world cup....
Is this action a serious man's action..?
You have only won 1 world cup with the referee's help in your stadiums and you go and ask for a bonus..?
Let's be serious...
When you have players like Crouch (is this his name..?)
He's the worst player in the whole world...!!!

Greece is the worst team that won Euro champ. God woke up realised what he did and didn't send you to World cup next summer.And I thank him for that because Greece plays the most boring football in the world.I am not Englishman nor Brasilian but a football fan who will pray for England- Brasil final in 2006.

Yeah right Greece plays the most boring football and England plays the most attractive.... Nice joke...You 've made my day....And what if we never take any cup again...We won Portugal twice and in front of their people...That's enough for me for the next 20 years....At least we won France that uually beats you...

Every once in a while sport, whether it be football, tennis, rugby, or whatever, will through up a freak result or outcome, sure greece's performance in Euro 2004 was spectacular, but as usual the cream always floats to the top, & the natural order is restored, therefore greece will watch the World Cup on TV, and see ENGLAND reign supreme as the greatest footballing nation on the planet.
