SVEN TO RISK TRIO

 SVEN TO RISK TRIO

Sven Goran Eriksson is not going to take any risks against Nigeria to save a possible suspension for three star players.  Emile Heskey, Sol Campbell and Ashley Cole are all on one booking and another against Nigeria would mean a possible suspension if England qualify for the second round.

Eriksson insist that England are not in a position to rest any players.  He will not leave any of the trio out for the showdown match on Wednesday.  He said' "I wish we were in the position to rest four or five palyers - but we are not."  That almost certainly means that the team that finish the historic win over Argentina will get another chance.

Trevor Sinclair will play on the left side of midfield while Paul Scholes will move into his favoured central midfield role.  Eriksoon was very pleased with Sinclair's contribution saying, "Sinclair was excellent against Argentina.  It was by far his best game for England.''
