Gelson cannot believe Man City defender Richards not in England squad

Switzerland midfielder Gelson Fernandes can't believe former Manchester City teammate Micah Richards is no longer part of England's squad.

When it comes to the England squad picked by Fabio Capello for the opening double-header of the Euro 2012 qualifying campaign, the 23-year-old midfielder admits to being perplexed.

"Where is Micah Richards?" he asked of his former team-mate at Eastlands.

"Gary Cahill, Joleon Lescott, Phil Jagielka - and no Micah. Oh God, I cannot believe it. I know they have injuries with John Terry, Rio Ferdinand and Michael Dawson. That can only help us."
