Nicole Carroll: A one woman mission to make a name in football

His name is Rio…and he’ll be dancing on the sand, not playing in South Africa

In a major blow to World Cup preparations, Rio Ferdinand has been ruled out from this summers competition.

The England captain sustained a knee injury in training today, and it is now expected that Tottenham’s Michael Dawson will be boarding the plane to replace the star.

Ferdinand was going to set a record of four World Cups, but now these dreams have been dashed, and he joins Beckham on the injuries list. He’ll be free to take his holidays elsewhere, but he’ll quite understandably be gutted for an injury led campaign to end like this.
