    But why are the likes of Rooney and Gerrard still on the pitch. Everybody knows that they are definitely on the plane for Brazil. So why not give a full 45 minutes to players that are not a cert for the world cup.

    This is only a friendly so the result doesn't matter. But it's the last friendly before Hodgson has to name his squad. So get a good look at the remaining contenders for a WC place, including our remaining three players.

    I should add that I would still be making this comment even if we had no Saints players in this particular squad. My Saints bias is not influencing my comment. I just can't see the point in playing "safely safely" in your last friendly before naming the final squad for Brazil."
