Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand is set to be overlooked by England coach Roy Hodgson today.

The Sun says Three Lions boss Roy Hodgson announces his squad for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers with San Marino and Montenegro this afternoon and last night Ferdinand had still not been contacted by anyone at the FA.

The Manchester United star, 34, was dreaming of a return to international football after injuries to Phil Jagielka, Chris Smalling and Phil Jones.
