Andy Carroll Comes Through England Training Session OK

Good news today that Andy Carroll came through his first training session this morning with England at Wembley Stadium, with no side effects of his groin strain, which may have even cleared up.

Joe Hart – injured his back this morning

The England medics will again assess the injury today, before manager Capello decides what part, if any, the big striker will play tomorrow night against France.

But Joe Hart seemed to injure himself this morning, and left training with a back injury, and the Man City goalkeeper seemed to be in considerable pain.

And it could be that Birmingham goalkeeper Ben Forster will now start tomorrow night, and get his 5th England cap, and maybe Shay Given will now get a chance at Man City.

18 year-old Jack Wilshere also did not complete the training session this morning, and there is now some doubt as to his fitness for tomorrow night’s game.

Center-back Phil Jagielka missed training completely, as the Everton player is suffering with a fever, and is another doubt for tomorrow night.

Comments welcome.

    Does anyone detect a slight shift in emphasis in the rags towards Andy Carroll since his selection by Capello?
    When a week or two ago, he was a bad bad Geordie boy and not the sort who deserves to be with England, now, with latest comments from the likes of Geoff Hurst and others, there’s the sense that, ‘if we can only get him out of that uncouth Gomorrah of a goldfish bowl at Newcastle, he’s a good boy deep down. Its those scantily-clad, cat-suited, northern floosies leading our great white hope astray. And by the way, the bookies will give yer a monkey for a pony he’s off to Chelsea…or Tottenham…or The Arsenal at the end of the season.
    No thanks.
