FIFA president Sepp Blatter has ruled out introducing new regulations to force players to talk to the media.

England's players took what was described by the Football Association as a "collective decision" not to speak to the media after their 2-1 win in Poland revitalised their 2006 World Cup qualifying campaign.

The players were reacting to the criticism which following their 2-2 draw with Austria in Vienna.

Blatter disagrees with the stance taken by Sven-Goran Eriksson's men, but told the Sunday Express: "I think it would be wrong if we had to make new regulations. It would not be correct."

Goalkeeper David James took most of the inevitable flak which followed the poor second-half display in Vienna.

He was dropped for the qualifier in Poland, as was striker Alan Smith.

hehe. imagine if it did happen, and someone had a nightmare game and got interviewed, and the player was soo angry. i think that would be the downfall. players are on occasions, not going to be in the mood for it

Seriously though why can't or why didn't they talk to the media?

Win, lose or draw whats the big deal, the papers will say the same things. The reason for interviews is to get your points across...
