Both David James and Sol Campbell have once again been named in the England squad for the crucial upcoming Euro 2008 qualifiers with Estonia and Russia.
Since first being recalled for the Germany friendly the pair have been named in the squad for each match since, however Campbell has had to withdraw from each squad selected due to injury - so this has to be a case of 3rd time luck surely?
It was feared that his 'final chance' might have passed but he gets in again despite his replacement from the last squad Joleon Lescott also being named in the squad - Campbell will do well to start either match, but I would not bet against him getting on as a sub in at least one of them.
As for James the fact that he should have been England's no.1 well over a year ago but was not has not changed my opinion that he should be the no.1 now - even more so with the matches so crucial and a commander of the area, as James is, needed - but Spineless Steve will probably retain Paul Robinson - I just pray that this will not be a decision that will cost us! Yep James might make a mistake occasionally but with the pressure really on I always know we can rely on him, I do not get the same assurance with Robinson…
It is good to see Dean Ashton back in the squad - how I wish we could have got him when he was available - but why Alan Smith and Wes Brown for that matter are again in the squad though is completely and utterly beyond me!
