Bothroyd and Henderson for England? Former Coventry City players Jay Bothroyd and Jordan Henderson could both be in line for full England call-ups.England boss Fabio Capello is understood to be considering playing an experimental side against France at Wembley on Wednesday November 17th and the duo both could come into the reckoning.Bothroyd, now playing for Cardiff City has been amongst the goals this season including hitting the winner at the Ricoh Arena last month. He has one England U21 cap to his name and has been linked with a possible place in the squad as regular strikers Wayne Rooney, Jermaine Defoe and Bobby Zamora all have injuries.Jordan Henderson has been doing well at Sunderland. The winger, whom Coventry wanted back on a season long loan after he impressed during his spell at the Ricoh Arena, was an integral part of the England U21 side which has qualified for the 2011 European Championship. Such has been Hendo's form that he has been linked with a £20m bid by Manchester City and has signed a new, improved deal at Sunderland and there are plenty of rumours that Capello may include him in the full England set up for the France game.
