Rio, Carrick, Wes Brown and Alan Smith have all been included in the England squad to play against Brazil and Estonia this week. Liar 23 has also been recalled.

Steve McClaren had some nice words for young Smudger:

"When you have had an horrendous injury like the one Alan had, it takes character to come back and play at any level again,"

"To then get a chance with England only speaks volumes for the player.

"He brings an enthusiasm and attitude to the squad, which is something we need."

Gareth Bale has joined Spurs for a fee believed to be around £10 million. They are now expected to bid for Nani.

Carlos Tevez reportedly wants to leave West Ham. He's obviously now being linked with United.
