Liverpool icon John Aldridge is happy to see Jamie Carragher reverse his England retirement decision.

Carra has been named in Fabio Capello's provisional England squad of 30 but Aldo is convinced he will make the cut and be on the plane to South Africa.

"I'll be having a close look at England, Spain and Argentina with the likes of Gerrard, Carragher, Torres and Mascherano involved," Aldridge told liverpoolfc.tv.

"I believe Carra will make the final 23. I also expect him to play quite a bit because Fabio Capello knows he can trust him.

"His change of heart has probably come due to Liverpool's poor season. I know after I missed that penalty at Wembley in 1988 I went away to the European Championships and enjoyed every minute of it."
