Form Not the Name!

If you don`t play regularly for your club then you can`t expect to play regularly for your country!

That appears to be Capello`s mantra when asked about the England future of Rio Ferdinand.

In no time at all, Rio has gone from England captain to England outcast with Fabio explaining,

"Rio needs to play games. He ha snot played enough and last week he was on the bench."

"It`s my job, sorry but I check all the players before I select them."

If a player is on top form I select them. I select the player, not the name."

Harsh, but very probably true!

He has been hampered by injuries, but he still has a lot of years left, maybe it would be better for Ferdi to retire from international football and focus solely on his United career.. Much like Giggsy and Scholsey did. Playing for both country and club will most probably result in to much strain and he'll end up injuried and not being able to play for either. When fit he is still 1st choice..

Completely agree with nordkap again. The international fixtures are doing him no favours and like Giggs and Scholes before him he should walk away and concentrate on whats most important. He's still a quality CB and has it in him to play at the top level until he decides to hang up his boots, he just needs a consistent run in the team again rather than having injuries forcing him to play a game or two here and there.
