The standing joke before the 2006 World Cup was he made the squad because he knew the way to the grounds.
His performance for 10 man England after Rooney was sent off against Portugal was Beckham against Greece-esque. Real shame if he is to retire, honest pro with real ability, and i agree i think he would have been a great asset to Englands lacklustre midfield.
