McClaren said: "I spoke to David today and made it clear that I was disappointed with his decision not to travel to the Under-21 tournament with his team-mates. That is why he was left out of the squad for the Germany game. But as far as I am concerned, that is the end of the matter." McClaren basically saying Bentley is good enough for the call up against Germany but will not get it as a punishment for pulling out of the UEFA U-21 championships this past summer. Is McClaren right or wrong? Punish a guy to discourage players in the future from sitting out lesser tournaments?...or call up your best options and play your best team? What do you guys think?

I don't know....the U-21 gig isn't a big deal IMO. If you're good enough in the first place (9 times out of 10) you will go directly into the first team squad.
