England’s unfortunate striker

“Harry Redknapp sold Darren Bent to Sunderland in the summer as he thought Jermain Defoe was a better goalscorer. With Fabio Capello now facing the same choice of strikers for a place in his World Cup squad, Bent will have woken up on Sunday a happy man. After he was harshly criticised for his performance in England’s tame defeat to Brazil the week before, his goal against Arsenal should have been enough to restake his claim for a place in Capello’s squad. That Defoe should respond with a five star performance against Wigan on Sunday afternoon was typical of Bent’s recent luck.” (WSC)
