  2. Special: Top 11 Most Loyal Footballers

    For me, loyalty means more than just staying put at the same team for a whole career. For loyalty to be true, it has to be tested.  And I see similar lists with the likes of Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, John Terry, Iker Casillas, Carles Puyol, Javier Zanetti, Paolo Maldini to name a few.  Although they are/were great players, they played for some of the biggest teams on the planet and in turn won just about everything there is to win.  They sacrificed very little at club level, it is difficult to see where each of them could’ve gone to have more stellar careers.  And, as a result of this, I won’t be including these types of players in the list as their loyalty never seemed to be truly tested.  The players I chose are the ones I believe stuck by their club despite knowing it would mean losing out on something bigger, whether that be silverware or just the chance to be seen and remembered by a wider audience.

    In a roller-coaster encounter in Kiev, England managed to battle back from 2-1 down to win 3-2 and in doing so, knocking Erik Hamren’s side out with their first ever competitive defeat of Sweden. England now just need a point from Tuesday’s game with co-hosts Ukraine to progress from Group D after a battling comeback led by the irrepressible Theo Walcott.

    England did enough to stifle a gifted French team to ensure a stalemate in the opening match of Group D, with a point a fair reflection for a match that was tightly contested and saw impasse for long periods. Joleon Lescott headed England in front on the half-hour mark only to see Samir Nasri slip the ball through a ruck of bodies in the English box 9 minutes later. Both teams seemed happier to draw the game as the second half wore on and both camps will be happy with a point.

    Possible Line-ups

    After all the well-documented problems England have experienced with injuries going into the tournament, it is France who approach Monday’s game in Donetsk with a few selection problems whilst England have all 23 players who made it to the tournament available. Blasé Matuidi missed last Tuesday night’s rout of Estonia with a thigh injury but he was likely to be a squad player, so the ankle injury Arsenal target Yann M’Villa picked up against Serbia remains Laurent Blanc’s only real injury problem. Alliou Diarra is expected to fill in for him alongside Newcastle’s Yohann Cabaye.
