Man Utd defender Ferdinand not losing sleep over England snub

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand says he's not losing sleep over his England snub.

Despite clearly remaining one of the top centre-backs in the country, the veteran star was overlooked again in Roy Hodgson's squad for the Wembley friendly against Brazil.

"I'm not sitting there thinking about trying to get back into the England team," Ferdinand told MUTV. "I'm just playing football for Manchester United.

"That's what I love doing and that is what's at the forefront of my mind. Everything I'm doing is for playing for Manchester United and doing the best I can for United.

"If that, in time, ends up in me getting a call-up for England, then great and fantastic. If it doesn't, I won't really lose any sleep over it. I'm here fighting for titles and couldn't be any happier if I'm honest."
