The piece of news of the day and, probably, of the week.
'Devastated' Wayne Bridge snubs England over John Terry sex scandal
Wayne Bridge, the Manchester City player, has decided he can't play with John Terry again so the best thing is not to play with England
Bridge was due to be included alongside Terry in a provisional 30-man squad for the friendly match against Egypt at Wembley next Wednesday, but he informed Capello earlier today that he felt he could not be part of the national team for as long as Terry – who has been stripped of the captaincy over this and other allegations about his private life – is involved.
I respect Wayne Bridge's decision to step down from the England team. It shows that he is only human. I suppose there are not many people, if there are any, who would be able to keep off the feeling of betrayal by a friend from affecting their overall game! Wayne was plain and simply betrayed, no doubt about it! Rather than having a blow up with Terry on the pitch, which would make the scandal even worse, Wayne Bridge's decision should be considered as the right move to diffuse tension in the England team building up to the world cup.
If I was Wayne Bridge I wouldn't help but feel that Terry's won in this situation. Terry was in the wrong yet he's the one that's kept this place in the England squad and who'll have his hands on the trophy should the team win the World Cup this summer. Bridge was betrayed, will never represent his country and again and will be watching his team mates in South Africa from his sofa in Manchester.
Doesn't seem fair to me at all.
