This has to be a joke!
Wigan defender Titus Bramble has been tipped to make his England debut by team-mate Chris Kirkland.
Stop laughing at the back. One-cap wonder Kirkland made the comment after Bramble – pictured here beating up Djibril Cisse – dominated Sunderland striker Kenwyne Jones in the Latics’ 2-1 win at the Stadium of Light.
“He’s been my player of the season by a mile,” said Kirkland, whose own England career has been torn apart by injuries. “He’s been performing like that every week, so I’d have to say he’s international standard.” (yahoo.eurosport)
This is classic. Now i don’t go for the idea of simply laying into a useless player just because it’s become something of a national pastime but the idea that Bramble should be capped by England is so laughable that i had to double check what i was reading to make sure i wasn’t losing my mind!
If Fabio Capello names the former Newcastle man in his line up, let alone a squad call up, i will personally eat my knee caps! Are there any other players fans think should be in line for an England cap?
