Palace's Johnson named in England friendly squad

Sven-Goran Eriksson has included Andrew Johnson in his squad to face Denmark in next week's friendly in Copenhagen despite the striker's decision to stay in the Championship with Crystal Palace.

Before reassurances from Eriksson, Johnson had been worried that staying at Palace would endanger his England place and, if Peter Crouch had been fit, his fears may indeed have been realised.

However, with the Liverpool forward sidelined by injury, Eriksson included Johnson but left out Manchester United's Alan Smith from his four strikers in the 23-man England squad named on Saturday evening.

Kieron Dyer is also absent, with Eriksson having spoken to Graeme Souness and deemed the Newcastle midfielder not yet ready to be picked after playing only sporadically in pre-season following last season's hamstring injury.

Wes Brown has, meanwhile, joined Sol Campbell, Ledley King and Wayne Brige in being ruled out through injury, meaning a recall for Matthew Upson, while Robert Green has just edged out Chris Kirkland as the third-choice goalkeeper.

Smith has suffered partly from the stiff competition for places at Old Trafford and partly from Sir Alex Ferguson's desire to experiment with increasingly using him as a midfielder.

Although Eriksson is keen to observe that experiment, it has seemingly reinforced his view that Johnson, despite now playing in the Championship, is one of his leading five front-line forwards.

Eriksson is also keen to keep a close eye on Kirkland this season following his loan move to West Brom from Liverpool and he only just missed out on a place this time around.

With Kieran Richardson and Stewart Downing selected in the under-21 squad to give them further match experience, Michael Carrick retains his spot among the midfielders after impressing on the summer mini-tour of the United States.

And with Brown, King and Campbell all injured, Upson returns for the first time since withdrawing injured from the squad to face Holland at Villa Park in February, with Zat Knight, who made his senior debut in the US, therefore missing out.

Goalkeeper Scott Carson, who is in the Under-21 squad, and Luke Young are the other two players who featured on the summer mini-tour who have lost their places, while Emile Heskey misses out again.

Squad
Robinson (Tottenham), James (Man City), Green (Norwich), G Neville (Man Utd), G Johnson (Chelsea), A Cole (Arsenal), Ferdinand (Man Utd), Terry (Chelsea), Carragher (Liverpool), Upson (Birmingham), P Neville (Everton), Beckham (Real Madrid), Gerrard (Liverpool), Lampard (Chelsea), J Cole (Chelsea), Hargreaves (Bayern Munich), Wright-Phillips (Chelsea), Jenas (Newcastle), Carrick (Tottenham), Owen (Real Madrid), Rooney (Man Utd), Defoe (Tottenham), A Johnson (Crystal Palace)

No way that those three will be picked by Olsen now. Bak will be picked in the future, but Nielsen and Traore have absolutley no future in the NT.

I'm just happy with the performances of Agger and Kahlenberg.

Fine result as well.

Yes, Frederik, Agger was immense, and Kahlenberg will come good in this team. Of course he is match fit and Jørgensen isn't, but I think Kahlenberg will soon be a real rival.

...and dear me does Grønkjær suck these days....

Fine debut from Gravgaard as well, and not just because of the goal. Big match from Poulsen too.

In the end... it's frustrating to see that we can only play when we're up a goal and the opponent has to come at us. Like Arsenal (albeit differently), we have no plan B. And that's why we have almost blown the WC qualification by now (I don't think we'll win in Turkey).

APATHY: A word now fallen into disuse due to a lack of concern for it.

Danish ratings: (out of 10)

Sørensen 7 (Had a good save and couldn't do much about the goal)

Priske 7 (Kept Joe Cole out of the game and participated offensively too)
N. Jensen 8 (As usual calm and great in the build up play)
P. Nielsen 7 (decent performance...never really tested...he lacks pace though)
Agger 9 (WOW Impressive performance (I'm FCK fan) this guy has a very bright future)

Poulsen 9 (Made both Gerrard and Lampard invisible...totally controlled the midfield)
Gravesen 8 (Energetic performance as usual)
Grønkjær 2 (He ran from A. Cole once but soon after messed it up...sad performance)
Jørgensen 5 (Clearly unfit)
C.Jensen 9 (great vision and technique he was the maestro offensively)

JDT 8 (scored a goal and assisted another and altough not totally fit he worked hard)

SUBS:
Gravgaard 8 (Great debut, no mistakes- proved how lethal he is in the air by scoring)
Rommedahl 8 (he came, he scored, he assisted)
Kahlenberg 8 (Very good performance, fabulous passing and always did the right thing)
Perez 7(OK, not thrilling)
S.Larsen 8 (deadly even as a sub)
D. Jensen (Unrated)

I rate all the English player 5/10 except Rooney 8/10 and David James 1/10

MoM: C. Poulsen

It's a long time it's been such a joy to watch the Danish NT and what a great second half. But it's true that we only know how to play when we are one up or against better opponents because they open up too.

It would be quite typical if we go to Istanbul and embarrass ourselves but I think we have a good chance aginst Turkey because they won't just stand back and defend. That will open up our game.

Kahlenberg should get Jørgensens spot. Kalle has something good going for him right now and Martin is just not up to it right now. I realise Serie A hasn't started yet but when was the last time Martin played a really good match for the NT? His good performances are just too far in between.

Agger will be immense one day but I have my doubts if he is the right guy in a do or die match in Istanbul.

Yada, yada
