Ferguson threatens England action
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson
Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has threatened to pull his England players out of the squad for the November friendly versus Argentina.

He told the club magazine: "I've never had problems with competitive games but I'll not risk my players in a friendly.

"I do not like friendly internationals. England have one this month and you can bet that Chelsea and Arsenal will be pulling their players out.

"And if I have the injury problems I have at the moment, I will be too."

Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand, Kieran Richardson and Alan Smith are all expected to be in Sven-Goran Eriksson's squad for the match in Geneva on Saturday 12 November.

It is the first of only four internationals England will play before they head to the World Cup in Germany next June and Eriksson sees it as a vital part of the preparation process.
