Arsenal legend Ian Wright believes Manchester United veteran Rio Ferdinand's recent form warrants an England recall.

Wright wrote in The Sun: "Roy Hodgson faces another embarrassing situation if Rio Ferdinand keeps delivering colossal defensive displays for Manchester United.

"I know he has had his fair share of injury problems but Rio was once again back to his best with an awesome performance in Sunday's 1-1 draw with Tottenham.

"If he keeps playing like this, I'm not sure England coach Hodgson can keep ignoring the player.

"And if he does continue turning a blind eye, Hodgson is in danger of making himself look silly."
