England captain Rio Ferdinand has expressed concern about the state of the Wembley pitch ahead of Monday night's friendly against Mexico. The danger posed by the uneven surface was highlighted when Blackpool forward Gary Taylor-Fletcher sprained his ankle in the play-off final on Saturday.
Ferdinand has joined John Terry in questioning the number of non-football events being held at Wembley. "It is a football stadium. That is what it was built as," said Ferdinand.
