Hell Bent for South Africa!

Well done Darren Bent lad! Congratulations on being included in the provisional 30 man England squad to go to Austria and for the Friendlies with Mexico and Japan. And also thanks to Mr Capello - we all thought you would bottle the decision and go with the london media hacks' choice of Bobby Zamora. An apology is owed Fabio!

It is now upto Benty to prove his worth, go out and conquer his place for the planet's biggest sporting occasion. How proud I would be to see a Sunderland player appear and even better score in a World Cup Final. Daydreams aside, just to make it on the plane to Port Elizabeth would be immense for both player and club.

Good luck Benty and ha'way the lads!

  1. Doubt he will go.......i think his efforts deserve a seat on the plane but to be honest, i'm not sure he gives as much to the squad as the other forwards at this level.
