Zog on the Tyne Seine

Congratulations to Charles N'Zogbia, whose superb end-of-season form has been deservedly rewarded with a place in the French squad for the forthcoming U21 European Championship in Portugal.

In truth, the as yet uncapped 19-year-old has only sneaked in at the last minute thanks to Mackem teenager Dan Smith's assault on Arsenal's Abou Diaby which Arsene Wenger very definitely saw and which left the French midfielder with a fractured and dislocated ankle.

Given the way he's been performing, though, you have to ask: why wasn't Charlie named in the squad already?
