Ferdinand poised for England axe

England coach Sven-Goran Eriksson is set to prefer Sol Campbell to Rio Ferdinand in defence for Saturday's World Cup qualifier against Austria. The BBC understands that Eriksson is concerned by Ferdinand's club form and will instead choose the fit-again Arsenal man to partner John Terry. (BBC Sport)

I personally think Rio here is over-rated, no thanks to Fergie's big buy-out for this bloke. Rio is a OK defender, compare to Jaap or Sol which both are solid brick wall but not Ferdinand. On the other hand, Heinze is a superb defender. All the best Sven...hope this is not a repeat of the Ireland disaster.
