Following John Terry's international retirement many names have been suggested as players that deserve a chance to impress.

An ex-team-mate of Terry's, Robert Huth, thinks his Stoke City defensive partner Ryan Shawcross should be called upon, while Demba Ba is also talking up the ability of his fellow Newcastle players.

The weather also seems to be a hot topic of discussion on the social networking site, with Thomas Sorensen and Youssouf Mulumbu both bemoaning the rain.
