Ledley King has only played one game for England in the past three years . He has had trouble playing two games in a week, he won't be able to play seven games in a month at the World Cup.
He started the friendly warm up game at Wembley on Monday.
The only positive contribution he made was a headed goal, which my nan could have scored.
After playing on the Monday night, he has now been rested for snday's game against Japan. Amazingly, football pundits believes he has done enough to get into Fabio Capello's 23 man squad.
“I believe I can play every game in the World Cup,” said King. “Towards the end of the season I managed to play the three games in a week so I know I can do it. I can’t play every game over a whole season but, over short periods, I can definitely do it with the medical team we have and the right recovery.”
The majority of footballers wouldn't need to make that comment, as they would be fit enough to play frequently.
Ledley King is not the man you want in defence, he is the one you want on the bench just in-case there is an injury.
If Fabio Capello is reading this .... Don't take him to South Africa!!!
