According to Vital England, Sol Campbell could earn, and be worthy, of a shock England recall.
Vital England says: I laughed out loud, seriously loud, when Campbell made the claims that 'an England recall was on his mind' when he returned to Arsenal - I did not think the guy would barely feature for his club let alone become a mainstay in their defence, as he has. Ok, perhaps out of necessity due to injuries to others, but from what I have seen he is having a good season and these laughs have turned into genuine thoughts of seeing the merits of including his experience, and to be fair quality, in the squad!
As a person, being a Pompey fan, I have little time for the guy - granted the club 'owed him money' due to an 'image rights' clause in his contract but does the 34, or is he 35-year-old really need the money? It seemed low to me, and his intentions to gain this seemed very ill timed, but hey ho! As a footballer he has proven me, and many others, very wrong. I thought he was washed up when he left Pompey, with his move to Notts County, I thought for the money, proving this. The rights or wrongs of this move not working out did little to disprove these thoughts but his actions on-the-field back at the highest level have shown he still had something to offer football.
'One last hurrah' this summer is most probably, for me, not beyond him - and given the frailties shown by John Terry, form wise, and Rio Ferdinand, injury wise, not to mention the lack of experienced, and to be honest confidence inspiring, back-ups that we have I would not be surprised to see Capello give him a call for the friendly with Mexico next month...
