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.
