Carragher for World Cup 2010Jamie Carragher had officially retired from international duties in 2007. He took the decision following the fact that John Terry and Rio Ferdinand had become the regular pair of central defenders for England. At the age of 32, he’s currently focusing his efforts to achieve glory with Liverpool, but he knows that this could also be his last chance to play in the World Cup finals.

Fabio Capello has just recently asked Carragher to reconsider his international retirement decision, most probably due to that fact that Rio Ferdinard is suffering recurring back problems. Michael Owen, who was Carragher’s team mate at Liverpool believes that Jamie will be a great addition to the squad and is still able to perform at top level for his country.

Ledley King, another defender plagued with injuries has returned to regular football with Tottenham recently and is expected to be included in the provisional squad for World Cup 2010 in South Africa. There were serious doubts that Ledley is able to play a number of consequetive games in a short time span, but have proved critics wrong by playing three games in the space of two weeks with Tottenham. After a serious of impressive performances, King’s team mate Michael Dawson is currently being considered too, especially because Lescott suffered another injury blow.
