Defender tipped to make international return

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez has backed Jamie Carragher to be a good option for England at the World Cup. Widespread reports suggest Carragher is set to make a shock return to the international scene after retiring in 2007. Carragher is set to be named in Capello's 30-man training squad on Tuesday and Benitez is happy to see the defender return to the international fold. "Carra is always fit and I think he will be a very good option for England," said Benitez. "They have centre-backs but they have had some problems. Carra can also play in two different positions. He can help England. "I think he'll be in the squad and I say congratulations because I think it will be good for him."
