Villa crock Bent: Muamba, Petrov puts everything in perspective

Aston Villa crock Darren Bent has put his injury woes into perspective.

Bent admits his foot injury could mean he misses England's Euros campaign.

But he is pleading for Bolton's Fabrice Muamba and Villa team-mate Stiliyan Petrov to make miraculous recoveries.

Bent, 28, told The Sun: "It certainly puts everything into perspective for me.

"I'm sitting here worrying if I'm going to be back playing again in eight weeks' time while Stan and Fabrice are fighting for their lives.

"How can I get all beat up about my problems when those guys are fighting tooth and nail to survive?

"That's why I'm praying every day they are on the mend again very soon."
