Tony Adams: Two More Years
Tony Adams (Portsmouth`s assistant manager) has said that David James and Sol Campbell not being in the England squad may help them. He believes that breaks such as next weekend, will help them prolong their careers. Adams was able to play two extra years after retiring from international football.
Tony Adams said;
'I'm pleased David and Sol haven't been called up, for Portsmouth reasons,' said Adams.
'I also think it will help the longevity of their careers. I retired from internationals in 2000, and I got two extra years out of myself - two good years at a high level. Now it's international week - and because they aren't in the international set-up, they can have a rest. It gives some of the younger guys a chance to make the step up.'
(Maybe Glen Johnson deserves a chance Steve? He obviously isn`t planning on playing anyone over the age of about 28.)
Personally, I think that it`s brilliant that Sol gets a weeks rest before the next Pompey match.
