Osman was handed his first call-up for England for next week's friendly with Sweden after impressing for Everton in their fine start to the season.

Moyes was delighted for Osman and feels the 31-year-old will comfortably make the step up for England.

"That news went down with the players and staff as good as anyone that has gone before," said Moyes.

"It was a pleasure to tell everyone that Ossie had been called up for England. His form this season has been such that he really deserves this.

"His consistency during my time here has been exceptional. He will take the ball and he will want to help England play.

"His football intelligence is as good as anyone I have ever worked with. He understands what you want him to do and he always gets on with it to the best of his ability.

"I felt at times that he might miss out but his form and Everton's form this season have helped him."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
