#1 Maybe they should go to Peshawar

#2 I think they're just affraid to play Turkey. They don't want to admit that they're a level below the Turks, especially without Owen and Ferdinad.

Ilhan Mansiz is a huge star here in Japan. But the rest of the team is really good too. Basturk, Sas, Davila, Nihat, Sukur and company probably could've taken Germany if they had a chance. They're second only to Brazil.

Beckham is overrated, although that teenager Rooney looks like a budding superstar.

I want to see this game.

#3 I wasn't aware that Ferdinand was in trouble with the FA but as an American, I applaud the England players' principled stand for due process. If it were a US team, he'd certainly play until found 'guilty'.

That said, I don't think England would duck Turkey although my money would be on the Turks. They are an emerging power in European soccer and very classy at WC'02. I think England-Turkey could become one of the great rivalries. I'm sure the England players look forward to testing themselves against such a great side. The Turkish fans, on the other hand...
