West Ham stars Andy Carroll and Aaron Cresswell have told ITV London they believe teammate Mark Noble should have received an England call-up.
Noble, who has played for the club for 16 years at youth and senior level, has never represented England.
Striker Carroll he thinks Noble’s achievements at club level should have earned him international recognition.
“He should have got an England cap, and maybe he still can, but what he’s brought to West Ham is great and all the lads love having him about,” Carroll told ITV London.
Cresswell added: “In my opinion he should have a couple of caps, definitely, I know he’s still quite young so there’s time.”
They were speaking at a charity golf day that’s part of Noble’s testimonial year, which players receive for long service at the same club.
Noble was born in east London and grew up supporting the club he’d eventually captain.
