Heskey will make Capello's squad - Davies

06 November 2009 02:34
Bolton captain Kevin Davies believes Emile Heskey will be a part of England's World Cup squad regardless of whether he stays with Aston Villa or not.

Heskey will be hoping Martin O'Neill selects him to lead the line again for Villa when they host Bolton in the Barclays Premier League, but according to Davies the former Liverpool forward need not worry about his place in the national team.

"I think Fabio is a big fan of his," Davies said.

"He's been in there ahead of strikers who are playing better and scoring more goals but I think as a target man, Fabio fancies him and likes the way he plays.

"I think he will be on the plane regardless, but like any player, you have to fight for your spot in your side and I'm sure he is trying to do that."
