Capello picks Barry as captain for Ghana friendly
England coach Fabio Capello has picked Gareth Barry as captain
for Tuesday’s friendly against Ghana.
With Rio Ferdinand sidelined with injury, Steven Gerrard also
out and John Terry rested after leading the team against Wales on
Saturday, Barry will lead a side likely to show 11 changes.
Capello says the Manchester City midfielder is ”a good player,
a good captain,” adding that he is the most experienced squad
member available for selection.
Barry previously led England for the second half of a friendly
against Trinidad and Tobago in June 2008.
