Portsmouth's Campbell set for England recall

New Portsmouth captain Sol Campbell is set to be offered an England recall by manager Steve McClaren.

With injuries hitting his squad, McClaren will turn to Campbell after admitting: "Certainly with the injuries we have got I will not be dismissing going to watch Portsmouth.

"Sol had a very good year last year. Obviously with the injury to Ben Foster, it would be foolish of me to dismiss David James and Sol. I never said I would do that and I have no intention of doing it.

"You can't close the door on anyone. It is all on the situation at the time, people's form and injuries to others. We have done it with other players before. You never close the door on anyone. As long as they want to play for England, then great."
