West Ham's Ashton Called Up for England
As widely tipped Dean Ashton has been named in McClaren's squad to face Greece. With Owen injured McClaren has been forced to make changes up front and consequently Defoe has been recalled to the squad.
David Beckham and Sol Campbell have not been named in the squad.
After Ashton, perhaps the best pick today was Terry Venables, who has been unveiled as assistant manager. The FA's choice of the inexperienced McClaren as manager seemed a ridiculous gamble to me, so it makes sense to appoint someone with experience of international management as his assistant.
