No Coming Back!
All those mutterings from the tabloid press about Rio`s return to top-form possibly earning him an England recall, seems a little wide of the mark.
In fact, although Roy Hodgson has older players in his thoughts, it would appear that Rio Ferdinand`s England career is over.
Following the recent excellent victory over Brazil, the current England manager seemed to lose his cool a little when pushed on the ongoing Rio situation, snapping back,
"It seems to me that every other day I have to answer questions about Rio."
"I don`t want to talk about him. I`m not prepared to talk about people who weren`t there when we`ve just beaten Brazil."
I`d say that settles that then, how about you?
