Carlos Cuellar says there could be up to six Villa players on the plane to the World Cup next summer.

The six, it appears, are: Gabby Agbonlahor, Emile Heskey, Ashley Young, James Milner, Stephen Warnock and Stewart Downing.


He told the official site: ‘They all have a great chance in my opinion. They are playing very well and have plenty of confidence in themselves.’


Ashley Young

That leads on very nicely to the poll suggested by deano.avfc who wanted to know how many Villans you think would make the plane. His list included Luke Young who has since announced his international retirement (see: ) and Curtis Davies who is out injured until the New Year and then you would expect he’ll have a long wait to disloged Richard Dunne and James Collins. Of course there are a few possible wild cards also, unlikely but depending on injuries, who knows, Steve Sidwell? Nigel Hokey-Cokey? Fabian Delph? Not likely but then, you’d have said the same about Theo Walcott of Arsenal.
