United - Rio Substituted?

United - Rio Substituted?

Having spoken beforehand about how much captaining England meant to him, Rio Ferdinand would have been delighted to lead the side out last night, against Mexico.

However, he`d not have been happy with how easily his defensive partnership with Ledley King was breached in the first half with Mexico`s Carlos Vela spurning two great chances.

Whether it was those defensive lapses that resulted in Fabio Capello replacing Rio with Jamie Carragher, at half time, is unclear or perhaps it was a pre-conceived plan to enable Carragher to see some action.

But having walked out at the front of the team and then introducing his players to the assembled dignitaries will serve as a great appetiser for the forthcoming World Cup in South Africa!

I think Carragher was always going to get time as both him and King have yet to be assessed by capello in an england shirt. I dont think much blame can be attributed to the defence in the first half considering the midfield were handing out free passes to the opposition.

The midfield did have a horror show but the defense didn't exactly cover itself in glory either and this was Mexico!
