Villa captain Petrov: Warnock right man for England

Aston Villa captain Stiliyan Petrov says Stephen Warnock is the man to solve England's left-back problems.

Petrov is in no doubt Warnock can excel on the international stage.

"He's a real warrior," said the Bulgaria midfielder. "He contests everything. For the size of him, he's brave in the air. Those would be qualities to endear him to the England manager.

"Any time that an opponent gets past him, Stevie is right back in his face. This is something that people in England love to see."
