Whilst I will admin I would really liked to have seen David James play for England last night, ultimately we have to be 'happy' that he did not really...
Remember the last time James went away with England, and actually played for England?
He came on against Ukraine when Rob Green got sent off and was then laid low with injury after that as he missed the next England game and then some of ours - a mixture of 'injury', 'illness' and 'contractual' issues meant he has missed large portions of this season. He is making up for it now though, even if he missed out last night...
It is often 'said' that James struggles to play 2 games per week, so 'if' he had turned out for England would he have then struggled to be fit for the Birmingham FA cup game this weekend?
To be honest, like I say as much as I would have liked to see him play for England I want to see him play against the Brummies in the cup more!
So, in many ways it is 'thanks Fabio Capello,' I always thought he has developed a soft spot for Pompey over the years...
The selection of Green ahead of James, and Joe Hart for that matter, must now make him the 'favourite' to be the no.1 at the world cup but James still has time and if he continues to perform for us for what is left of this season as he has recently he will, at the very least, be going to South Africa.
If he plays his part at the weekend then he could be on for a quick return to Wembley, and who knows 'might' well head off to South Africa as a relegated player but with another FA cup winners medal in his pocket perhaps...
Whilst talking about England, as well as James and Pompey most importantly, I may as well do some 'self promotion' and point you in the direction of Vital England - here!
PLAY UP POMPEY!
