Fabio Capello named Ledley King, Jamie Carragher, Adam Johnson and Michael Dawson among his provisional 30-man squad for next month's World Cup finals.

There is also a surprise place for West Ham midfielder Scott Parker.

Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry does make the squad even though he is expected to be out of action for up to four weeks with an ankle injury.

Barry's team-mate Adam Johnson is one of two uncapped players in Capello's squad, the other being Tottenham defender Michael Dawson.

Carragher quit England duty in 2007 after growing unhappy with his lack of playing time under previous England coaches Sven-Goran Eriksson and Steve McClaren.

Joe Hart (Man City), David James (Portsmouth), Robert Green (West Ham).

Defenders:

Leighton Baines (Everton), Jamie Carragher (Liverpool), Ashley Cole (Chelsea), Michael Dawson (Tottenham Hotspur), Rio Ferdinand (Man Utd), Glen Johnson (Liverpool), Ledley King (Tottenham), John Terry (Chelsea), Matthew Upson (West Ham), Stephen Warnock (Aston Villa).

Midfielders:

Gareth Barry (Man City), Michael Carrick (Man Utd), Joe Cole (Chelsea), Steven Gerrard (Liverpool), Tom Huddlestone (Tottenham), Adam Johnson (Man City), Frank Lampard (Chelsea), Aaron Lennon (Tottenham), James Milner (Aston Villa), Scott Parker (West Ham), Theo Walcott (Arsenal), Shaun Wright-Phillips (Man City).

Forwards:

Darren Bent (Sunderland), Peter Crouch (Tottenham), Jermain Defoe (Tottenham), Emile Heskey (Aston Villa), Wayne Rooney (Man Utd).
