England recall for Bent

Published Add your comment

Darren Bent has been recalled to the England squad for next week's friendly with Brazil in Qatar.

The Sunderland striker has been in fine form this season, scoring eight goals for the Black Cats, although he did miss a penalty in Saturday's defeat at former club Tottenham.

However, international recognition had proved elusive. But, with Emile Heskey and Carlton Cole both ruled out of England's penultimate game before Fabio Capello must name his provisional squad for next summer's World Cup, Bent has been handed his chance.

Aston Villa defender Stephen Warnock and Tottenham midfielder Tom Huddlestone have also been called up for the clash in Doha on November 14.
