Hopefully next season I will be injury-free and I can show everyone what I can do.
It's a big challenge and it's a World Cup year.
Every Englishman wants to be there. I look at my competition there and, in all honesty, I don't see players better than me.
I feel I am good enough to be around that set-up. It is about being given a chance.
FIFA has announced it will not take disciplinary action against the Football Association for alleged racist chants from England fans directed at the Ferdinand brothers during the match against San Marino in March.
However, The FA has been warned to take "preventative measures" after anti-discrimination body FARE reported the singing of an abusive song, which called for Rio and Anton Ferdinand to be burned on a bonfire, to FIFA following the World Cup qualifier.
– FIFA Statement
We can confirm that in the case of alleged racist chanting during the recent World Cup qualifier San Marino vs England, it has been decided not to open disciplinary proceedings due to the lack of concluding evidence.
The FA's attention was however drawn on the pertinent provisions of the FIFA regulations and they were requested to display prudence and adopt appropriate preventive measures in order to avoid that incidents of such nature do occur in the future.
– Juventus midfielder Andrea Pirlo
In 2014 I will stop with the national team, I think the World Cup will be the last appointment with the blue shirt.
You have to leave room for the young.
At club level I will continue on as long as I have passion and I feel important.
Otherwise I'll be the first to get me out.
