This weekend will quite probably make or break Sol Campbell’s England career once and for all.

Having been recalled along with his Pompey teammate David James the Pompey captain unfortunately has not been able to play a solitary minute as injuries keep ruining his chances.

Many of us – myself included – thought that his final chance has gone when he had to withdraw for the second squad running last month, but he got back in this time and surely lightening could not strike for a third time – or so we thought!

An Achilles problem has limited his participation with the squad, but it is hoped that he will be fit – a fitness test will be given to him today – even more so now with the news that John Terry will definitely sit out the Estonian match, which would make it a near certainty that Campbell will not only feature in that match, but will start it if fit.

Destiny awaits, if he can prove his fitness he will become the first man since Mark Hateley to start a competitive match for England since 1984 – if he misses out through injury again then this would surely be the end of the line for him and would have to be viewed as the gods telling him it is not meant to be?

PLAY UP POMPEY!
