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."

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
