Peter Shilton think Ferdinand may regret his now famous England snub

Former England goalkeeper Peter Shilton says Rio Ferdinand will live to regret his decision to pull out of the Three Lions’ World Cup qualifiers against San Marino and Montenegro.

“Playing for your country, for me, was the ultimate but that seems to have changed a little bit,” Shilton told reporters.

Famously withdrew from England in order to follow what has been described as a pre-planned fitness routine.

“I don’t know the circumstances of what went on but I wanted to get every cap I could. To play in the World Cup and try to win something for England was the ultimate.

“I don’t know why Rio isn’t playing, whether it’s an injury or not, but if he has just pulled out for no reason then I totally disagree with that.”
