That was his last WC too. There is no way he is playing in Brazil for the 2014 games. Honestly this may be a blessing for England, his pace isn't what it used to be, and especially in the first leg of their Champions league game against Man U, he looked almost lost. England has so much depth they wont even notice, however I do feel terrible for the man.
In brighter injury news, Clint Dempsey made his first appearance since his Knee injury last week, and Charlie Davies is going to be playing again next month for Sochoux. If Gooch can get healthy, Nesta is out for the season, and surely he can take Nesta's place.
