That’s the question posed by this journalist. It looked as if Dickson had forced his way back into the national team after some storming performances last season but he’s faded from view again. Fitness issues aside, he’s good enough to make the World Cup squad so I can’t see what the problem is. Fulham will be the winners if he remains out in the cold as he’ll be available at a time when we expected to lose him for the African Nations’ Cup.
