Glen Johnson is not only the best right back for England – he's also the best in the league. In fact, I'd go so far as to say he could be the best in the world. I really think that. Some people rave about Ashley Cole being one of the best in the world but Johnson on the other side has all the attributes to be even better than him. People also go on about European and South American full backs, but Glen beats them all for me. As a former right-back, I watch him and I can tell you he is one of the very, very best there is and the lad can only keep on improving.
