After a season spent on the substitutes bench for Manchester City, Shaun Wright-Phillips was a surprise call-up to Fabio Capello's World Cup 2010 squad.

The 28-year-old saw off fierce competition from Arsenal's Theo Walcott and club team-mate Adam Johnson to make the plane to South Africa. He will provide cover on both wings for first choice duo Steven Gerrard and Aaron Lennon.

Although an unlikely tourist, Wright-Phillips' eye for goal from midfield will provide the Three Lions with an attacking threat from the sidelines.

Wright-Phillips is the adopted son of Arsenal and England striking great Ian Wright and half-brother of Plymouth Argyle's Bradley Wright-Phillips.
