Ronaldo scoring twice against Blackburn Rovers seems an eternity ago and i’m sure we’re all looking forward to the trip away to Bolton on Saturday. Starting with Ronaldo, he played in a 0-0 draw at home against Finland, which put the Portuguese through to the finals next summer. Unfortunately, Vidic will not be joining Ronaldo after failing to qualify from the same group with Serbia. Evra (although second choice for some reason to Abidal of Barcelona) qualifed with Louis Saha for France having come second in their group to Italy. Edwin Van Der Sar will be playing his last competitive international tournament next summer as Holland came second to Romania.
So there we have it, all the top nations there expect for England. Does anyone really care? I suppose I want to see Wayne Rooney in action all the time and I want him to prove how good a player he is against the top international defenders. But then I see the arrogance of the FA and sheer inadequate performances of England’s midfield and it really doesn’t bother me.
