Well just as Michael Dawson was handed a World Cup reprieval another Spurs star suffers World Cup heartache. Wilson Palacios was earlier tonight stretchered off in Honduras friendly with Romania. Although nobody has been able to confirm how severe the injury is the early signs didn’t look good for Palacious. If ruled out after the scan to his shin it will be a major blow for Honduras, Palacios does the same job in the heart of the midfield for his country as he does for club and will be sorely missed.

It’s still early days so maybe he can recover in time to play some part, however it hangs in the balance and if he fails to recover it could be his one and only chance of playing in a World Cup. For only the second time in their history have the Hondurans qualified for the finals which shows that chances like this are few and far between. Wilson is a man of steel, he is tough and i’m sure it will take a hell of a lot to stop him playing in the World Cup. We should know more tomorrow

Well as I predicted in a recent post here it looks like the 2 unlucky Spurs players to miss out were in fact Dawson and Huddlestone. It looks as though Capello has opted for experience over form,as Upson and Carragher made it into the squad over Dawson despite Dawson having a better season. Carrick made it in over Huddlestone, despite Huddlestone having a better season.

Other players to miss out were Theo Walcott, Darren Bent, Scott Parker, Adam Johnson and suprisingly Leighton Baines.

Tottenham will still have 4 players representing them in the England team in Defoe,King,Lennon and Crouch. There were doubts over King would make the cut due to his fitness but personally I dont think his place was ever in question, every England manager has noticed the talents of Ledley and worked hard to get him into the England set up and when he has played he never let them down. For the likes of Huddlestone and Dawson, maybe not this time but i’m sure they have plenty of caps to come in the future.
