QPR defender Anton Ferdinand has refused to join the condemnation of brother Rio's omission from England's Euro 2012 squad.

Sol Campbell is the latest to speak out on the matter, claiming he would hand all his caps back if he felt a decision between Rio Ferdinand and John Terry had been taken on the basis of skin colour.

But the younger Ferdinand brother told Daybreak: "Things happen in football. It's a game of ups and downs. I am sure he'd like to be there but sadly it didn't happen this time."
