In his column for The Sun, Redknapp wrote: "I really can't praise my players enough for the way they've performed, especially Tom Huddlestone - who I think should definitely go to the World Cup - and Gareth Bale, as good a left-sided player as there is.
"But on Wednesday I think you saw the REAL miracle man in Ledley King, who was absolutely out of this world against Arsenal.
"When you think he hadn't played for two months - hadn't even trained really - it was even more remarkable.
"While I think Tom should go to South Africa with England, that's even more the case with Ledley.
"Six days between games would give him the recovery time - that tells you about the struggle he has to play tomorrow - and he'd be a real asset.
"If Ledley was out there and anything happened to John Terry or Rio Ferdinand, no one should think England are in the you-know-what. He's proved his ability to go straight back into the side after a lay-off and handle it against the best."
