Rio - International Football Quandary

Rio - International Football Quandary

All that kerfuffle about Rio Ferdinand not being selected for the 23 man squad Roy Hodgson first selected and then took to the Euro 2012 tournament appears to have dulled Rio`s appetite for the international game.

Down in South Africa, on the first leg of our pre-season tour, Rio has spoken, wryly, about the future and insinuated that he intends to concentrate on the domestic scene for the foreseeable future, commenting,

"I`m not thinking about playing international football."

"Manchester United is at the forefront of my mind."

"It`s my club and this is what I love doing. If anything else comes of it so be it."

"But I don`t think of anything else except for playing for Manchester United and hopefully winning back the league."


Has Roy Hodgson, by omitting Rio from that twenty-three man squad, called time on Rio`s England career or is there still a chance that he could play a part in our World Cup 2014 qualification programme?

He won't play whilst Terry is there and seeing as by some miracle Terry was found innocent of making a racist comment it doesn't look like Terry's going nowhere anytime soon.

Don't think it's a point of Rio won't play with Terry he's a professional. He won't like it but he'd do it for the good of the team. It seems to me woy and the FA have decided its best to keep them separated.
