Re: International Matches Discussion Thread
Christ no to Jones as a right-back. He was horribly exposed in Montenegro. He should be a nailed on starter at CB hopefully by the Euro's anyway.
I'd never pick Agbonlahor either, unless he knocks in at least 20 EPL goals this season.
Unfortunately I don't see Capello picking Jones at centre back but he should do. I'd have Smalling as first choice at right back for sure.
Agbonlahor's started the season on fire and if he carries on the way he is, I'd take him all day long. He's strong, exceptionally quick, good in the air and can finish. The fact he plays with Bent too at club level and Rooney is suspended, he's a ready made replacement for him.
Welbeck & Sturridge aren't as experienced as him and they're still first team regulars. I'd definitely prefer Agbonlahor to Welbeck who I think will be the back up when Hernandez isn't fit at United. I like Welbeck but he's playing in a team where scoring goals isn't exactly difficult with the players around him. Agbonlahor's scored some fine goals all by himself, most notably against us & Wigan.
