More Pressure On Sorensen?
More unhappy times for Villa goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen after apparently being told by his international manager Morten Olsen that he won't keep his place in the Denmark starting line-up if he loses his place in the Villa goal.
Sorensen recently criticised Martin O'Neill for bringing in Scott Carson and now seems to be under pressure from all angles as he looks to recover from a hamstring injury and return to action.
International action this week in the many pointless friendlies organised just as the Prem season was getting underway and are well represented:
Gareth Barry and Scott Carson are in the England squad v Germany.
Stephen O'Halloran is in the U21 Republic of Ireland squad v Germany.
Gabby Agbonlahor, Luke Moore and Craig Gardner are in the England U21 squad v Romania.
John Carew, Norway v Argentina.
Stiliyan Petrov, Bulgaria v Wales.
Olof Mellberg, Sweden v USA.
Wilfred Bouma, Holland v Switzerland.
Shaun Maloney, Scotland v South Africa.
Martin Laursen, Denmark v Republic of Ireland.
