Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp insists his players won't let England down tonight in Croatia.

England fielded three Pompey players in their last outing at the weekend.

Yet only David James is guaranteed his place tonight, with Jermain Defoe and Glen Johnson both under threat from the axe.

Redknapp is certainly keeping his fingers crossed all three keep their places.

He told the Portsmouth News: "Whoever would have thought three Pompey players would start for England in a World Cup qualifier? If I had said that six years ago people would have said I needed my head examined.

"Jamo will start but I'm not sure what will happen with Glen or Jermain after the Andorra game.

"Of course I want them to play. I just don't know what Capello will do."
