Benni McCarthy is reported to have failed to show up after being recalled by South Africa.
McCarthy, who retired from International football (again!) 15-months ago was called up by Carlos Alberto Parreira last week, and after being due to meet up with the squad in Durban on Monday he has apparently pulled a no show.
It was not sure if Benni would even accept the invitation to return to the South African set-up but Reports in South Africa say Benni failed to meet up with the squad on Monday ahead of their African Cup of Nations qualifier with Chad on Saturday, so it looks like he decided not to answer it after all?!?!
Meanwhile one man determined to answer the call of his country is England's (I can say this now after his first senior call-up!) David Bentley.
After a highly impressive England B showing on Friday against Albania Bentley was called up to the senior squad for the first time on Saturday and he could make his debut against Brazil on Friday. If he gets the chance he will grab it with both hands.
"I went out there (against Albania) knowing I had to step up the ladder again and I had to perform.
"Hopefully I can make the next step up. Why not? Every time I step out onto a football pitch I aim to put on a good performance and not to let people down.
"When you put on an England shirt, you need to perform well and that's what Steve McClaren expects.
"He expects nothing less and a lot of passion and quality. That's what he wants and anything less is not good enough.
"It is a dream of mine to be in the full squad and I will grab it with both hands if I am given the opportunity to play against Brazil or Estonia."
I know whose boots I would rather be in at this point in time!
