Man Utd defender Ferdinand tipped for instant England recall

Former Arsenal defender Martin Keown says England need to instantly recall Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand.

Keown insists Ferdinand should be lining up alongside John Terry in a competitive game for the first time since October 2009 when England face Switzerland in a Euro 2012 qualifier at the weekend.

"There is no argument at all about the fact Rio deserves his place in the team," Keown said, at the Millbrook testing plant of England sponsors Vauxhall, where he also took part in a Q&A session with local workers.

"He has had his injury problems. But he is very polished and is probably the most accomplished central defender we have at the moment."
