Whether it was because of his Achilles injury or any other reason is unclear, but Bobby Zamora hasn’t made it into Fabio Capello’s England squad.

The Fulham striker has been impressive in the last few weeks and was thought of as a potential inclusion for Wednesday’s friendly against Egypt but Carlton Cole and Emile Heskey have been chosen up front. Ryan Shawcross and Leighton Baines have also been included in the squad.
