Wigan boss Bruce backs Heskey for major England role

Wigan Athletic boss Steve Bruce says Emile Heskey deserves a major role in Fabio Capello's England team.

"I'd have thought with the lack of English centre-forwards, Emile has got to have an outstanding chance," Bruce said of Heskey, whose equaliser at Stamford Bridge so embarrassed Chelsea on Monday. "He is the best centre-forward of his type. He has pace and good technique. He is the perfect foil for Michael Owen or Wayne Rooney."
