Capello picks his 'dead-men walking' for penalty shoot out

England coach Fabio Capello has already picked the five players for possible penalty taking duties against Germany on Sunday. Frank Lampard, Wayne Rooney, Steven Gerrard, James Milner and Gareth Barry are the five who will step up, according to a report in the Daily Express.

And Jermain Defoe is waiting in the wings should any of the quintet be unavailable through injury, tactical substitution - or a red card.

The entire squad has been practising penalties on a regular basis ever since they came together in May, but Lampard, Rooney, Gerrard and Milner have had extra sessions - and Barry is now joining in them after recovering from injury.
