Fabio’s Squad vs The People’s Squad

Today Fabio Capello named his 23-man squad for the World Cup. A few weeks ago I ran a poll to see who fans thought should be on the plane (full results after the jump).

Here’s the squad as chosen by those who took part (with names in red of those not chosen by Fabio), in order of popularity in each position:
Goalkeepers: Joe Hart, Robert Green, David James

Defenders: John Terry, Ashley Cole, Glen Johnson, Rio Ferdinand, Ledley King, Leighton Baines, Michael Dawson, Matthew Upson

Midfielders: Frank Lampard, Steven Gerrard, James Milner, Aaron Lennon, Joe Cole, Scott Parker, Adam Johnson, Theo Walcott

Forwards: Wayne Rooney, Jermaine Defoe, Peter Crouch, Darren Bent
And here is the real squad, with names in blue of those who didn’t make the people’s squad:
Goalkeepers: Joe Hart, David James, Robert Green.

Defenders: Jamie Carragher, Ashley Cole, Rio Ferdinand, Glen Johnson, Ledley King, John Terry, Matthew Upson, Stephen Warnock.
