Dawson Added To England Stand-By List

Tottenham defender Michael Dawson has been added to England's stand-by list after Luke Young (Charlton right back) pulled out through injury. Young was deputising for Manc motormouth Gary Neville.

Michael Dawson is a centre half with one year of Premiership experience. Luke Young is a right back. This isn't the cleverest of moves. The problem is: when I tried to think of another English right back of sufficient quality to play at international level, not a single name sprang to mind.

This is another thing that gives the lie to the claim that the current England squad has strength in depth. It doesn't. There's lots of good central defenders and lots of good midfielders and nothing else.
