    Downing in England Squad

    He certainly deserves his chance, coming from back from injury and a short period of indifferent form. He gives Eriksson extra choices too and is certainly a better choice than Wright-Phillips. He can act as out and out winger, he is left sided, he can play in deeper midfield using his speed to break, he knows where the goal is and he can tackle. His example is also a good role model for the rest of the younger Boro players.
