United - Brown Retires!

I have to say that the announcement by Wes Brown that he is quitting international football surprised me.

Brown, called into the squad for the friendly against Hungary, at Wembley, this Wednesday has decided that the nation would be better served by giving youth a chance and in a statement released last night (Sunday), had this to say,

"After a lot of thought and with a very heavy heart, I`ve decided the time is right for me to retire form international football.""

"At 30 I feel its right for me to stand aside and let younger players come through."

Brown leaves the international scene having accumulated 23 caps but at 30 years of age could have had one last major international tournament to look forward to.

Therefore, does our readership consider it a noble gesture or a slightly foolish one?

Definately not foolish. Playing for England should be an honour but with the expectations of our very own England fans its almost a death sentence. He is a useful but very average player, not a first-teamer, not even for England!

I really don't think England will miss him that much.
