No England calls for Owen or Kev

Capello may need reinforcements following Saturday's 4-0 friendly win over Slovakia, with first goalscorer Emile Heskey, his replacement Carlton Cole, and a second substitute, Peter Crouch, all going off before the end.[LNB]Cole is definitely out of Wednesday's World Cup qualifier against Ukraine with a thigh injury, while Heskey will have a scan after lasting just 14 minutes after suffering what Capello claimed was cramp.[LNB]And even though Crouch should be fit despite picking up a hip injury, Capello will almost certainly need back-up, especially if Heskey misses out.[LNB]But Owen does not have to wait for a call and neither does Davies, who had been tipped to earn a place in Capello's original squad when it was announced last week.[LNB]"Michael Owen played 20 minutes in his last game, it is not enough," declared Capello. "And it would not be Kevin Davies either."[LNB][LNB]
