Next England fixture could be most awkward yet
Next Friday’s match in England’s 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign could be their most awkward yet as the bad blood continues to boil between players, staff and the FA alike.
Stories have continued to emerge involving manager Roy Hodgson discussing Rio Ferdinand on the tube, John Terry being found guilty of racist abuse by the FA, and Ashley Cole consequently abusing the FA on Twitter for going against his evidence in the original court case.
It is now getting to the stage where few in the squad will be willing to talk to each other in the dressing room or on the pitch.
But that is unlikely to make much difference to the level of performance.
