At a press conference, Fabio Capello confirmed that Bent would not be featuring in the qualifier and opted to play Crouch along side Wayne Rooney up front. (!!!!!!) The news is not a good one for the Three Lions as the two centre-backs, John Terry and Phil Jagielka have also been pulled out owing to their injuries.
( blah blah talks more about the captaincy issueCollapse )
Cool, ANOTHER injury. BUT YAY CROUCHIE IS FINALLY GOING TO PLAY. THANK YOU, CAPELLO!
