Four make the cut!

Peter Crouch, Jermain Defoe, Aaron Lennon and Ledley King have been named in England's final World Cup squad for this summer's finals in South Africa.

All four have made the cut after Head Coach Fabio Capello trimmed his squad from a provisional 30 to a definitive 23 on Tuesday.

It will be JD and Ledley's first World Cup finals after both missed out last time round in 2006. For Crouchy and Aaron, however, it will be a second Finals after both featured in Germany four years ago.

The selection means Michael Dawson and Tom Huddlestone, who were both in the original 30, miss out on the trip to South Africa.
