'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Boumsong Looks Forward

Jean-Alain Boumsong has put aside his horror Premiership season and looks forward to the World Cup. The Toon defender has tipped France as World Cup dark horses.

The 26-year-old defender has defied the odds and will head for Germany with the French side, despite many suggesting he would be over-looked.

Boumsong: 'I'm delighted to be in the squad. It always makes you very proud to represent your country, especially in a competition like the World Cup. We are not one of the favourites this time, but I believe we have a good chance to win it.

'People are talking about teams like Brazil and England and some others, but our senior players - our leaders, like Zidane, Makelele and Thuram - are big players for us and if they are all fit, then we will have a chance.

'We are a strong side, and the fact we are not one of the favourites could help us. We are going into the tournament in a good position, and we are looking forward to it.'

He was a bit of a liability at the back for you lot and Bramble needs someone to boss the defence cos he hasnt got the leadership in him.
Englands no1
HE CAN'T RUN, CAN'T TACKLE, CAN'T PASS, UTTER CRAP
