Ferdinand fears for England days

Published Add your comment

Rio Ferdinand has accepted his England career is almost certainly over, ending his dream of winning 100 international caps.

Ferdinand, 33, has been controversially overlooked for Euro 2012 by new manager Roy Hodgson - a move that drew criticism in the first instance and even more so when the inexperienced Martin Kelly was chosen to replace Gary Cahill when he withdraw through injury.

The Manchester United defender is now ready to regretfully close the book on his England days, albeit without formally retiring, and told The Sun: "You would have to say it might be over with England for me. If I'm not getting picked now, especially when people are out injured, then it's unlikely I will be picked again."
