Jermain Defoe was wound up, Fabio apparently told him he had bad news for him. Defoe’s heart sank. The the Italian supremo added, the bad news was that he’d have to cancel any holiday plans – he was going to South Africa, baby!
One happy chappy is Joe Cole. Seemingly up to ears in negotiations domestically, he now has the opportunity to really up the value of his stock now he made the cut.

The Defenders, a brand new band from Leeds, who have released an unofficial England World Cup Anthem, called ‘Mr Capello’.
Matt Bowman of the Pigeon Detectives, said: “This song is catchier than Three Lions, has more class than Vindaloo and a chorus that deserves to be shouted by every England fan on the terraces”. The Kaiser Chiefs and Embrace are also backing the song as the underdog northern anthem for the World Cup.
A group of creatives from the North of England produced the song/video for Mr Capello – the first ever remote World Cup Anthem – using only NorthernNet digital technology to help them collaborate over 350 miles.
