Things are changing, gone are the days when players would play till they were finally dropped for good, bringing an end to their international careers. Depending on the depth of their career would determine the reaction to the end.
Now the treadmill of football, the hassle factor and press scrutiny means footballers are bringing their own international careers to an end. Although classed as a charmed life the unrelenting routine must get you down especially when you don’t need the money. From a spectators point of view the new football season is not particularly appealing after the excitement of the World Cup, from a players perspective it may be more appealing as its back to normal and the added extra commitment of international football fades away for a time.
Spooky the same day I wrote this Capello announces he won’t be picking David Beckham again pity he didnt tell David first.
