Football News: Glazers to sell United shares, Spurs to be offered Rodwell swap? Arsene Wenger backed by David Dein
Fabio Capello named his England squad for the midweek friendly against Holland and suggested that he wouldn’t ever pick Joey Barton for the squad claiming his attitude is too much of a risk for the national set-up. There were few surprises in the Italian selection, although the decision to include Danny Welbeck ahead of Jermain Defoe and Darren Bent raised a few eyebrows.
