Ashton Dropped from England

Dean Ashton has not been named in the England squad for Wednesday's friendly against the Czech Republic. Capello watched Ashton and Heskey play today and decided not on the player who got two goals but the one firing blanks.

Presumably this means that Ashton, who was subbed with a calf problem today, has been made unavailable through injury. The BBC say he "has been ruled out" which seems to confirm Ashton is injured once again. Hopefully he will be fit again for next Sunday.

Matthew Upson, on the other hand, obviously did enough to impress the England manager as he has been recalled to the squad. Robert Green was ignored once again, whilst Robinson, who apparently continued his poor form of the last year today, was recalled.
