Is Hendo in the U21 squad?
Pulled out because of an "injury".
He was, but he isn't.
Must admit, at both U21 and senior level its getting daft. In theory we play friendlies (other than the FAs money spinners/ failed vote winners) so we can get practice against certain teams and try things out to hopefully improve performances in the important games, but nowadays so many people happen to pick up a "knock" that keeps them out of the friendly that its getting pointless. I know a lot of people dont like international football etc, but thats not really the point- i think they should either get rid of international friendlies, or say that if anyone is injured enough to miss an international game, they have to miss at least 2 club games as well (or it could be that they are allowed to miss a game only if they have featured in, say, 80% of the last 10 games they have been called up for)
Good then he'll get a rest that he needs, too much football for one so young IMHO.
