Luke Young Has Retired From International Footie

Strange one this!

Villa right-back Luke Young has hung up his international boots according to the players agent.

The 30-year-old who has seven caps made up his mind last season according to a BBC Sport article.

His agent Andy Evans said Young could have made the latest squad are a replacement for Liverpool right-back Glen Johnson for this weekends friendly Brazil.

Apparently Young has decided he wants to concentrate on his club football. England's loss our gain?

Surprised really. Outside chance of going to world cup. Obviously made his mind up some time ago. I always watch the England games and go to a few live. Always better when Villa players on the pitch! The more the merrier!

He's only been picked because Capello is letting the Liverpool players have a rest . When it comes time for serious games Glen Johnson will be handed back his spot so i dont blame Luke . Johnson is a good attacking player but only an average right back . I'd pick Luke Moore any day .
