No league games this weekend. You all know what that means: International break!
Since there really isn’t anything Premier League business to chat about, it would be only right to have a rundown of what our men in white are doing away from the Reebok.
Fabrice Muamba & Daniel Sturridge
Both went 87 minutes with Danny notching a goal in the 62nd minute against Denmark. The two will be in the team to face Iceland at Deepdale on Monday.
The big Bolton center back had Arsenal and Bayern Munich’s eyes on him at Old Trafford last Saturday but the defender only has eyes for the England starting lineup. The Three Lions are set to play Wales but save for a shock, it’s looking as though Cahill will miss out on the starting 11 with Dawson and the Klingon (er, Lescott) ahead of him in Fabio’s eyes.
South Korea beat up on Honduras with a 4-0 victory. While Chungy didn’t put the ball into the back of the net, he certainly wreaked havoc with the Hondurans. The young midfielder forced saves from the Honduran keeper in the 7th and 10th minutes. In the 70th minute, one of his headers flashed just over the bar.
Expect the outside back to play against Cyprus this weekend as Iceland have a chance to get off the bottom of the Group H table.
The midfielder has been excluded from the Israel squad for the Euro qualifiers against Latvia and Georgia.
Our brilliant American was scheduled to play and most likely start against Argentina and Paraguay on Saturday and then midweek. Unfortunately one Jonny Evans has put him out for 6 months. Scratched from the lineup.
