I had no idea whether I was going to get into the squad. I鈥檇 had a lot of injuries that season, and in April I was selected for an England B http://www.officialauthenticravensstore.com/Nike-Mark-Andrews-Jersey.html game and Glenn Hoddle said: 鈥淚 want to take you but you鈥檝e not played enough games.鈥 I didn鈥檛 think I was going. Then he announced a 30-man squad with me in it, and we went to a training camp at La Manga. Every session you鈥檙e trying to decipher what it means for your place in the squad.

Eventually, those of us who made the 22 were told at the hotel, all at the same time. It quickly came out that Paul Gascoigne had been pretty unhappy at missing Derrick Shelby Youth jersey out, and that鈥檚 what people remember. We鈥檇 been together for a while and all of a sudden you鈥檙e losing some of your colleagues, and as pleased as you are that you鈥檙e not one of them, watching those guys head http://www.officialbuffalosabres.com/Adidas-Josh-Gorges-Jersey out the door, seeing their sadness, that wasn鈥檛 good for the group.
I think what Gareth has done is much better. There鈥檚 people on standby but everybody knows where they stand. And I like his squad: I think England have always picked players for tournaments because of their reputation. This is the first time I鈥檝e seen a squad genuinely picked on merit.
In France we were in a hotel in the countryside. The facilities were fantastic and we had some things to do 鈥 a pool table, table tennis 鈥 but there鈥檚 only so much of that you can play. There are going to be periods of boredom. When you鈥檝e got nothing to do you pick up a newspaper, and that鈥檚 when the media scrutiny hits you, and if there鈥檚 negative press the squad picks up on it pretty quickly. Gareth has been to tournaments, he鈥檒l know that and he鈥檒l put something in place to stop the boredom kicking in. I would have liked to go out on some trips, to get the players in a group together, away from the hotel. But then if results are bad everyone would have complained that the players were off doing that rather than concentrating on football.
We had a strong team in Japan, built on a strong defence. The key was that we had played together for a long time. I knew Pharoh Cooper Youth jersey Sol Campbell鈥檚 game, Sol knew Ashley Cole鈥檚 game, I knew Gary Neville鈥檚 game, or Danny Mills鈥檚 game [Neville missed the tournament through injury]. When you鈥檝e got those relationships, it allows you to perform with confidence, and I think that鈥檚 what this England team is missing.
There were a lot of injuries in the buildup 鈥 David Beckham was coming back from a metatarsal, Kieron Dyer and Steven Gerrard were both affected by injury and replacements were flying in and out. I think if a player鈥檚 carrying an injury going into a tournament, they鈥檙e never going to get fit enough to come into the team and make a difference. Especially if it鈥檚 your star man, the attention it creates, especially if that player doesn鈥檛 play to his best, it has a negative impact on the squad. You want to get rid of all that razzmatazz 鈥 a player needs to have played at least a couple of games at the end of the season, and the manager needs to be strong enough to make that call.
He doesn鈥檛 have to only pick players who are in form, though. You need people with international experience, who the manager trusts, but if you鈥檝e got a few players on the fringes of the squad who were in form at the end of the season, they can make a difference.
I have good memories of that World Cup. I think it was the most well-organised tournament I went to. There were some big distances to travel but the facilities were fantastic, the pitches were first class and I think every detail was taken care of perfectly. My family came out, and nobody had a murmur of complaint. Plus we beat Argentina. We were a long way from home but at a World Cup that doesn鈥檛 make a difference. You鈥檙e in your bubble. You could be on the moon and it wouldn鈥檛 make a difference. cheap jerseys wholesale nfl jerseys cheap nfl jerseys cheap nfl jerseys
