Ferdinand`s International Career Over?

Ferdinand`s International Career Over?

Although the press are making a big thing about it, the absence of Rio Ferdinand from the England squad for the forthcoming fixture against Montenegro, has hardly come as a surprise.

Once again, Rio`s season has been stop start with injuries affecting his availability and his appearances in a United shirt have been limited.

Subsequently, Rio`s sharpness has dropped away and Fabio realizes that.

Whether Rio can get back into the international scene remains questionable though. At 32 age isn`t on his side and the fact that he`s only featured in 3 of the last 15 internationals suggests that his England career may be on a downward slide.

Age takes no prisoners!

Ferdinand isn't the defender he use to be but even still he's a far better option than most others and his experience is an added incentive. It's not over for him yet. I do feel frustrated though that the media are turning a blind eye to John Terry and his form. Since Carvalho has left and is no longer mopping up his heroics and defending for 2 men he's been exposed defensively on numerous occassions. Like Ferdinand, I've seen sides like Westbrom and Norwich run him ragged and breeze past him just for poor finishing to save him blushes.

Hard to see a way back for Rio then? End of an era!
