In other United-related England news, Emile Heskey has spoken of his role in Rio Ferdinand's tournament-ending injury. The Sun quotes the striker: "I spoke to Rio afterwards and he told me there was nothing I could do but it was still difficult for me. What happened was that I tried to turn the ball around the corner and fell backwards onto him but his leg was in a position where he couldn't actually move it."
Meanwhile, former United star Arnold Muhren has told the Manchester Evening News that Uruguay's Luis Suarez could shine at the World Cup. Suarez, who plays his club football at Ajax, has been linked heavily with a move to Old Trafford. Muhren says: "I am sure a lot of clubs like United will be taking a very serious look at him in South Africa. If he has a good World Cup and scores goals on that stage then he could convince a few he is worth buying.”
