Seaman not ready to retire
David Seaman
Seaman doesn't want to hang up his gloves yet
David Seaman is not ready to follow Alan Shearer into retirement just yet.

The 36-year-old Arsenal keeper has not had his best season in goal, but he obviously believes it's been a blip rather than age catching up with him.

Seaman will be 38 when the next World Cup rolls round and he feels he has another major championship in him:

"I don't want this [Euro 2000] to be my last championship, and I don't expect it to be either.

"I want to go on. I'll be at Arsenal next season and hopefully I can get another World Cup finals under my belt."


Richard Wright
Richard Wright is Seaman's likely long-term successor
With England's goalkeeping stock at its lowest level for many years, Seaman must have a good chance.

Nigel Martyn has had an excellent season, but some would say that the appearance of David James in the England squad shows how few good English keepers are around.

In the long run, England's last line of defence is likely to be manned by Ipswich's Richard Wright or Manchester City's Nicky Weaver.

Both have talent, but neither has yet been tested at the highest level.
