World Cup boost for duo

Wednesday 22 May 2002

Sean Davis and Zat Knight have been given a World Cup boost today as Sven-Goran Eriksson revealed that all of England's Under-21 players could be available for World Cup selection should more injury problems affect the England squad.

"If we have any more problems then I will bring in players from the Under-21s.

Eriksson continued, "In effect all the Under-21s are on standby. I will phone David Platt later today. It's a pity for the Under-21s but it is good for us."
