Huth ‘surprised’ by Ryan snub

The 23-year-old Shawcross has been called up for international duty

on a couple of occasions but has yet to get on the pitch. For the

squad against France, Capello selected the likes of Manchester

United’s Chris Smalling and Manchester City’s Joleon Lescott,

neither of whom have played as much first-team football this season

as Shawcross. “I think everyone was a bit surprised,” Germany

international Huth told The Sentinel. “There were a few random

choices. It is none of my business, but I think Ryan is a class act

and a class player. “Given time and the chances, he will probably

play for England.”
