The Sunderland fans were singing "Are you watching Fabio?" as he scored his 20th league goal this season in a struggling Sunderland team against Birmingham on Saturday but it is a valid question, even if the fans were mocking the English manager.
What has Bent got to do to get the nod ahead of the unbelievably bad Heskey? The out of form Walcott? And the injured Defoe? Score another 20 goals before the plane to South Africa hits the ignition key?
It is frightening how a player who is the second highest English scorer in the league behind Rooney is not even considered by some pundits and fans. Mark Lawrenson said on Match of the day that he "should be considered but it will never happen"….why Lawro? Because he is no longer based in Cappello`s home territory of London anymore?
If Cappello decided to look as far north further than Peckham he may realise that Bent is in the form of his life and with the correct service he could do a job for England in the World Cup this summer.
We have to start playing the players who are in form and Bent is by far the form player at the moment with a record of every two games he scores a goal. No matter which club he has played for he has made it into double digits and this should not be thrown away by Cappello as he looks at journey men like Heskey to carry the task of supporting Rooney in June.
Bent has made himself top goal-scorer for one reason only, to make people recognise he is talented and capable of scoring goals. He is becoming a legend on Wearside with his commitment, passion and belief in front of goal and if he is picked for the 22 man squad this Summer he will not disappoint.
VOTE BENT FOR ENGLAND ALL FANS!
