No Addicks in World Cup squad

No Addicks will be going to Germany in the World Cup squad. Untried 17-year old Arsenal striker Theo Walcott is favoured in front of Darren Bent (and Judas Defoe who is on standby). Luke Young is not included either, but he does make the standby list along with Palace's Johnson.

The fear must be that this will encourage Young and Bent to pursue their careers at a bigger club and overshadows signing US international Gibbs from under the noses of Boro.

Corey Gibbs will be the first Ivy Leaguer to play for Charlton, being a graduate of Brown University where he played for four years for the Brown Bears.
