ENGLAND manager Fabio Capello is due to name his squad for next month's Euro 2012 qualifiers against Bulgaria and Wales on Sunday evening.

Although it will require a number of fringe players, including Michael Carrick, to get the nod, United could have as many as eight representatives in the squad.

Ferguson is delighted about that. However, he has used it as an opportunity to highlight his unhappiness with the FA, which covers a range of issues in recent times, including a touchline bans he served last season plus a controversial two-match suspension imposed on England striker Wayne Rooney that ruled him out of last season's FA Cup semi-final defeat to Manchester City.

Asked about his England contingent, Ferguson said: "It is fantastic. The FA may realise who has produced more players for their country than any club in the world.

"Maybe they will get some joy from it and realise how important we are to England instead of treating us like s***.
