Mixed England news for former Blues

In Steve McLaren's first squad announcement since taking over as manager there was a welcome return to the squad for Shaun Wright-Phillips, yet David James England career appears to be over soon after his City one was as he saw Chris Kirkland and Ben Foster preferred to him in the squad, almost certainly signalling the end of his international career.

Personally, it is a justified move in recalling Wright-Phillips who I thought was unlucky to not be taken ahead of Aaron Lennon, and nothing I saw in the World Cup persuaded me otherwise.

Good news for both Nedum Onouha and Micah Richards who were named in the under-21 squad earlier this week.
