Gary Neville has expressed his surprise at England boss Fabio Capello's decision to only include one right-back - Glen Johnson - in his provisional 30-man World Cup squad, leaving himself and Wes Brown out of the reckoning. "I wouldn't say I'm overly disappointed not to be in the initial 30-man England World Cup squad," he said. "I thought there was a chance I could get in but I was under no illusions how tough it would be, after not being named in the squad for a year. I'm slightly surprised there is only one right-back in the entire squad, but I'm probably more surprised Wes Brown isn't in the 30."
