Capello picks Spurs six

Tottenham Hotspur

Six Spurs players, including Ledley King, Michael Dawson and Tom Huddlestone, have been named in England's provisional World Cup squad.

Fabio Capello has announced a 30-man party on Tuesday, with all of those players offered the chance to impress during a training camp before he cuts the squad to 23 for June 1.

As expected, Peter Crouch, Jermain Defoe and Aaron Lennon have been included but the other trio have been called-up after a lack of chances at international level in recent years.
