Does Rio Ferdinand have an England future?

BBC Radio 5 Live's Monday Night Club debates the withdrawal of Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand from the England squad.

Ferdinand's last England appearance was in the 2-2 draw against Switzerland in June 2011 but he won a recall for the matches against San Marino and Montenegro, before announcing on Monday he would not be joining the squad.

BBC commentator John Motson, journalist Ian McGarry and former pro Steve Claridge discuss the situation, with Claridge insisting Ferdinand "could handle" playing against Montenegro.
