Roy Hodgson opens door for uncapped West Ham United stars to play for England

West Ham Upton Park

West Ham United trio James Tomkins, Mark Noble and Aaron Cresswell are all waiting to receive their first England chance.

England boss Roy Hodgson has told West Ham United's official website that he believes James Tomkins, Mark Noble and Aaron Cresswell are capable of playing for the Three Lions.

Hammers fans have become frustrated with the lack of international recognition for the brilliant form of their key men in recent times.

Tomkins, Noble and Cresswell have been consistently overlooked by England, with Hodgson tending to select other Premier League players ahead of them.

However, the Three Lions boss has confirmed that all three will be a part of his future plans, if they continue to perform at their current levels.

“In Tomkins, Cresswell and Mark Noble, there are good football players who are quite capable of playing for England, but they face competition because one or two others who have done well over the last few years," Hodgson said.

“It’s all a question of competition and keeping an eye from my point of view to make sure I’m not missing any.”

Tomkins, Noble and Cresswell have all played big roles for West Ham, as Slaven Bilic's side have climbed into third place in the Premier League table.

The trio are some of the form players in England's top-flight right now, and there is only so long that Hodgson will be able to continue ignoring them.

Tomkins, Noble and Cresswell will hope that they are called up to the England squad soon, as they will be keen to break into the set-up before the start of Euro 2016 next summer.
