Five Make England Squad

Five Make England Squad

England takes on Brazil on Wednesday night in a fixture that forms part of the Football Associations 150th anniversary celebrations.

To be played at Wembley, it promises to be a sparkling occasion and with Roy Hodgson announcing the England squad yesterday, Manchester United are well represented with Roy selecting - Chris Smalling, Michael Carrick, Tom Cleverley, Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck.

Here`s hoping that all manage to get through our fixture at Craven Cottage, this Saturday, unscathed.

As long as they don't comeback injured I don't care how they do for England. Too much expectation upon players that can't play as a team with a mediocre manager to ever realistically win anything.

"It`s absolutely the case that if you`re good enough, you`re young enough. Frank has been doing extremely well since he got back from injury... When he`s not been with us it`s been because he`s not been available. He`s been a consistent performer for club and county, with a great footballing brain" - Hodgson talk about frank lampard. Seems a pretty apt description of Rio as well so I'd love to know the real reason why Hodgson treated him like *****. Mediocre coach.

We all know the reason Famous the FA and the comedy of errors that was the John Terry racism farce. Not to mention Woy dropping himself in it on the tube won't go back on the decision now in fear of looking stupid. Which ironically he is now managing because of the said decision

Personally glad Rio's not being picked stops him getting injured in pointless friendlies designed to lined the FA's coffers. They need the money so much why don't they just get more Americans to play their "football" at Wembley.

Don't get me wrong MotorMad I am glad also, just makes me laugh how much of an ********* some of these managers make themselves look. I would've just loved it if the press popped the question 'don't you think the same could be said for rio?' Just to see him try and squirm out of that one. One rule for one and another for everyone else. How long are we forced to endure boring defensive mediocre football under Woy again?

Another 3 years unfortunately but by then he'll be around 68 so don't think we'll have to worry about a contract extension being given to him. The FA won't fire him not after having to pay off Capello so 2016 England may be watchable again.

Just in time for more gifted youngsters to take the mantle rather than the dross the usuals dish up :)
