Manchester City and England goalkeeper Joe Hart has put forward club and international team mate Gareth Barry to take the captain’s armband for England’s friendly against Spain in the absence of John Terry.
Capello is set to experiment in the friendly, meaning the captaincy against the current reigning world champions is up for grabs. Goal.com reports Hart’s full backing of Barry to lead the team out at Wembley. “Gareth’s the man, simple as that, someone I look up to. If you spoke to anyone who knew the guy, they would say the same. He does as you should and leads by example, no messing around, a very good performer every week, who never moans. When you start to panic, look at Gareth and he just keeps on doing what he is doing, and doing the unselfish role he does.”
