Man Utd defender Ferdinand recalled to England squad

Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has been recalled to the England squad for the World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Montenegro. The 34 year old has 81 caps, and his last England appearance was in the 2-2 draw against Switzerland in June 2011.

"He's playing well, his team are doing extremely well and this is the moment to select him because he deserves it on current form," said boss Roy Hodgson.

"Hopefully he can help us win the next two matches because that's the most important thing."
