Portsmouth´s Sol Campbell has backed Jamie Carragher´s decision to call time on his England career "except in the case of an absolute emergency" after the Liverpool defender became frustrated at the lack of international opportunities at centre-back.

Campbell, who was dropped from the national squad last summer when Steve McClaren took over from Sven-Goran Eriksson, has still not officially given up on his own England chances despite the last of his 69 caps coming at last summer´s World Cup in Germany.

But he said of Carragher: "You can´t blame him because I totally understand the situation he is in."
