Arsenal hero Keown: Man City fullback Bridge needs time to rethink decision

Arsenal legend Martin Keown wants England to back away and give Manchester City fullback Wayne Bridge the chance to rethink his international retirement.

Keown believes Bridge has been rushed into a decision and should be given the chance to change his mind.

"I think it's the pressure of a culmination of things," the former Arsenal defender told BBC Radio Five Live.

"They meet each other at the weekend, and then there's the Egypt squad to be announced, but, for me, he's made the decision too quickly.

"There's a lot of healing for Wayne Bridge to do and I think he's made the decision too soon."
