Mark Noble: Hoping to gatecrash England's World Cup squad

Noble, who captained the Under-21 side, has yet to win a senior cap but is refusing to give up hope of gatecrashing Hodgson's party for next summer's finals in Brazil.

The 26-year-old has been a consistent performer for West Ham and he believes he could make the step up for England if he got a call.

"I believe I am good enough," Noble told the London Evening Standard.

"I have seen the players we have had here who have been in the England set-up and I believe that if I made that step up, I would be able to mentally and physically cope with it.

"I'm not going around shouting that I should be in the squad and all that because I am not that sort of person.

"I have obviously played in the Premier League week in, week out, since I was about 19 and played at a good level.

"If it happens, it happens, but I am just going to keep on enjoying my football, getting on the ball, enjoying passing and creating stuff and if it happens, it happens."

ell, if he'd be unable to reject an offer from Barcelona or Madrid, he may as well join Arsenal while he's waiting for them to call. It's a logical progression.

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.
