Rio Out Too, By The Sounds Of It

Sigh. Twanged his knee in training under challenge from Emile Heskey. More here.

As it’s more than 24 hours before England’s first game of the tournament they can name a replacement, so just be grateful it’s happened now. One of Ferdinand and King was always going to disintegrate at some point. Michael Dawson has been put on standby and is probably pretty pleased with himself.

My bigger immediate worry is that this now passes the armband to Gerrard for the tournament. He’s coming off arguably the worst season of his career during which his limitations as a captain have become apparent. No idea who this leaves as vice-captain either.

Anyway Ferdinand’s having a scan and an FA statement is being released later on, with the BBC pretending someone has told them “it’s not looking good”.
