Despite calling time on his international career three years ago, Jamie Carragher jumped at the chance to travel to South Africa for World Cup 2010.

The Liverpool veteran will provide an essential utility role in defence, able to cover every position across the back. His solid play could also see him favoured ahead of Anfield colleague Glen Johnson in tight matches at right back.

At 32 and with more than club 500 appearances under his belt, the experience of the Bootle born player is an essential part of Fabio Capello's squad.

Carragher held the record for England under-21 appearances for seven years after playing 27 times, before this number was eclipsed by goalkeeper Scott Carson in 2007.
