England ‘manager’, Sven Goran Eriksson, says that Arsenal bigman, Sol Campbell, will make it to the world cup, as long as he plays some regular first team football for the Gunners.

Eriksson says he has been in contact with the defender, and he knows what he needs to do.

Eriksson said: ‘I spoke to Sol some weeks ago. We had a discussion about things and he desperately wants to play at the World Cup.

‘He’s injured. He has an ankle problem. It’s not for me to discuss what happened at Arsenal. I hope he will soon start to play for Arsenal on a regular basis because that’s a must if he wants to play at the World Cup.

‘If Sol plays regularly as Sol can play, then he will be picked for the World Cup.’
