Trevor Sinclair and Danny Gabbidon react angrily to West Ham United midfielder Mark Noble's omission from England squad

West Ham United midfielder Mark Noble was not selected by England for their upcoming friendly matches.

Trevor Sinclair has expressed his displeasure at the fact West Ham United midfielder Mark Noble was not included in England’s squad.

Noble was widely considered to have an excellent chance of making it into Roy Hodgson’s squad for their upcoming friendlies against Germany and Holland.

However, the 28-year-old was overlooked again - and Sinclair was very frustrated for his former teammate.

Danny Gabbidon also reacted on Twitter, after hearing the news that Noble wasn’t to be included, and he was similarly angry.

Noble has been one of West Ham’s stand out players this term, but he has still never been capped for his country.

The central midfielder has led the Hammers by example, but Hodgson clearly feels that he has better options available to him.

Hodgson picked Leicester City’s Danny Drinkwater ahead of Noble, leaving the Hammers’ man’s chances of going to EURO 2016 looking slim.

Noble was not the only West Ham player to miss out on the Three Lions’ squad, as Aaron Cresswell was also omitted.
