Manchester City and England midfield stalwarts Gareth Barry and James Milner have backed City and England team mate Joe Hart for the vacant captaincy role of The Three Lions.

The goalkeeper, who became England’s first choice goalkeeper after the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, is believed to be a strong candidate for the captain’s armband and the endorsement of his two team mates might just prove to be the clincher for the 24 year old.
