Harry Redknapp’s revelation on BBC radio last night, telling the story of Spurs players who used to try to get out of playing for England, has caused quite a stir.
England captain Steven Gerrard has called for ‘Arry to name names, to oust these wrong ‘uns.
Former Arsenal striker Ian Wright has a more extreme suggestion, as he lays out in his Sun column today:
‘The next young player who says he does not want to play for England should be ordered to ring the parents of a soldier who has died serving his country in Afghanistan, and tell them his reasons.’
Exactly of what interest would it be to these people that a millionaire doesn’t want to play a game of football?
