Bent in for England, sort of

According to the BBC website, 'England manager Sven-Goran Eriksson expects Charlton striker Darren Bent to win his first cap in Wednesday's friendly against Uruguay at Anfield. Eriksson will decide his starting line-up after training on Tuesday, but revealed Bent would play some part.'

This is rather carefully worded. Presumably it means more than bench warming duties. But it could cover a 15 minute cameo at the end of the game which would not give him much chance to display his talents. [The latest news is more encouraging, apparently Dazza will start alongside Rooney].

But at least there will be another name to add to the international honours board at The Valley.
