Tom Huddlestone: Loving life with the Tigers

Huddlestone last played for the Three Lions nearly a year ago, in the 4-2 friendly defeat away to Sweden last November.

Since then, a summer switch from Tottenham to Hull and regular football has re-ignited his career and Bruce has backed the midfielder to get back on England boss Roy Hodgson's radar if he keeps performing well.

Bruce told the Daily Telegraph: "It's scary how good he is. If there's a better passer of the ball... I don't think there can be.

"He has great players ahead of him: the Gerrards and Lampards of this world and the Wilsheres.

"But there's no reason playing week in, week out and performing like he has been doing, why he can't."

t's a bloody good goal, though. Sh!t, the kid's gonna be the worlds best before we know it, isn't he? He's got the touch of genius in him. Like Neymar, but with muscles and stuff. He's doing a Ronaldo as we watch. He's bulked up to be able to ride the tackles, but he's improved technically as well. His touch is sublime. Bugger.
