Pick Manchester United’s Rio Ferdinand for England because he pushes striker’s over
IAN Wright still writes for the Sun. He wants to talk about Manchester United’s Rio Ferdinand. Over pages 50 and 51, Wright supports Rio for England. Good. Ferdinand is a great player. If he’s good enough to play for United against Real Madrid, he ‘s good enough for England. But what can England expect from Wrighty’s England stopper?
“Rio earned the last of his 81 caps against Switzerland in June 2011 and, over the course of time, has lost some of his pace. But as he has continued to show, the guy has not lost his quality. As he illustrated with his shoving of Fernando Torres in Sunday’s FA Cup tie with Chelsea, he still has some fire in his belly.”
Great. Rio’s the man for the big occassion becsue he pushed over a Spanish striker facing the other way. How will that ever fail..?
