Arsenal hero Parlour: Only Alexis good enough for Invincibles

Arsenal hero Ray Parlour rates Alexis Sanchez as the only player from the current team capable of making it in the Invincibles.

Parlour is a big fan of the attacker but he doesn't rate his team-mates quite as highly.

He told Carlsberg led 'The Peoples Pundit': "I don't think the full backs would be good enough. Lauren was a great underrated player and Ashley Cole was fantastic.

"I really like Laurent Koscielny; he's improved so much. I could maybe see him getting a game instead of Kolo Toure, alongside Sol Campbell. You could make an argument for that, anyway.

"In midfield, (Patrick) Vieira and Gilberto did a great job and (Robert) Pires was a very good player. The only one I could really see getting in would be Sanchez, on the right side of midfield.

"As for up front, none of them would have any chance of replacing (Dennis) Bergkamp or (Thierry) Henry. Not a chance."
