    Even tho Darius Vassell scored against the mighty CITY yesterday i dont no what Sven is playing at picking himfor his squad, and there is even talk of him going to the WORLD CUP, HA HA HA.
    Just because he scored a good goal against Holland, his name is the name being mentioned to go to JAPAN/KOREA and set it alight.
    I can think of 50 better English strikers who Sven should take.
    These are just a few examples:- Kevin Phillips, Micheal Ricketts, Matt Jansen, Andy Cole, Alan Smith, Jermain Defoe, Malcolm Christie, Teddy Sheringham and even Bobby Zamoura.
    I just think people should get it out of their heads that he is international quality, for Gods sake, he cant usualy get a start for Villa(come on).
    As soon as Sven realises this the better and Vassell will never play for England again!!!!!
    But will anyone care? i wont

    What are you on you prize p.r.i.c.k. vassell is a great prospect, he also scored past paraguay and shut liverpool up at anfield. Who else has done that? lets break down the strikers you pointed out:

    Michael Ricketts - Hasnt scored for weeks
    Kevin Phillips - ditto
    jermain defoe - is in the exact same boat as vassell, young and still learning his trade
    Teddy Sheringham - I agree could go to to the world cup for experience.
    Alan Smith - done sod all this year, and with his poor discipline could give us a 'dirty england' tag

    Your just a bitter leicester fan, and whose to say if vassell goes he'll play every game? he will more than likely be a sub or a fringe player, just because his included means nothing. Just a bitter fox, so get over it. C u next year

    Vassell

    I think Vassell has done more in 2 games for England than what every other striker apart from Owen has done in a year.
    I say take Vassell to the world cup give him the experience so that Owen and Vassell can be the strikeforce to dominate the world of football at international level in the future.

    Sven has taken him along but I reckon its just for back up and the experience - can't see him getting an opportunity unless they are cruising it in a game, which seems unlikely.

    But good luck to him and hope he takes his chance IF he gets one!
