Johnson was named in Fabio Capello's initial 30 strong party which will be trimmed down to a final 23 on June 1 But the former Middlesbrough player impressed when part of England's training camp in Austria after impressing Capello during the second half of the campaign at Eastlands. The 22-year-old is expected to play at least some part against Mexico and has caught the eye of Gerrard. The Liverpool skipper said: "Adam has looked fantastic in training. He is a typical left-winger, he gets good crosses into the box, and is exciting on the ball. "We will have to wait and see what players Fabio goes with in the final 23. "But I am sure Adam has got a fantastic chance of going to the World Cup because he is a very talented player." Do you think Johnson will make the final cut?
