Description

Fabio Capello has bemoaned the “striker virus” that has disrupted his plans for Wednesday night’s World Cup qualifier against Ukraine. Emile Heskey, Carlton Cole and, this morning, Darren Bent have all been forced to pull out of the Italian’s squad, forcing the manager to call up Aston Villa’s Gabriel Agbonlahor. With Rio Ferdinand and Shaun Wright-Phillips also, tentatively, back in training, Capello said he was “touching wood” that there would be no further injury problems to his squad.
