FOOTBALL - Roy Hodgson will unveil England’s Euro 2012 squad on Wednesday and a persistent rumour has it that Rio Ferdinand will not be among the 23 on the plane to Poland and Ukraine. The career of the defender will thereby take another bizarre turn as he has been named in four World Cup squads and not a single European Championship squad. His next chance at a major championship would be the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
