The West Ham full-back has once again been overlooked by the national side.
Naturally, supporters were left unimpressed - and the Three Lions boss has once again been accused of holding a 'big-club bias' against the likes of West Ham.

As Opta stats show, Cresswell certainly has a strong case for an England call-up - especially ahead of Gibbs. It's also a similar story with Danny Rose, who Tottenham fans are frustrated wasn't included.
Going forward, West Ham's Cresswell has more assists than both Gibbs and Southampton's Bertrand. He is a better crosser than Gibbs and has created more chances than Rose, Bertrand or the Arsenal man.
The West Ham full-back doesn't rank too well in terms of tackles and interceptions but blitzes the opposition in the clearances department and also fares well in terms of headers per game.
And the biggest statistic of all - based on Hodgson's own promises about how he will select his England squads - Cresswell has played more minutes than any of the national side's left-backs. Twitter wasn't happy...

Apparently Kieron Gibbs is better than Aaron Cresswell... Hodgson has lost it.— Liam Hunter (@LiamHunterYo) May 21, 2015
Aaron Cresswell plays for a top 6 club then Woy picks him. It's snobbery!— Jarrod J Steel (@BecontreeHammer) May 21, 2015

Aaron Cresswell is one of only a handful of players to have played every minute of the season and yet Gibbs who has barely played half is in— Mike Atkins (@MikeAtkns) May 21, 2015
