Trevor Sinclair has agreed with Ian Wright’s comments that Roy Hodgson should have picked West Ham United midfielder Mark Noble ahead of Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson for England.
Noble was controversially omitted from the Three Lions’ squad, for their friendlies against Germany and Holland.
And Wright told BBC Radio Five Live programme 606 that he felt Noble should have been in the England team ahead of Henderson.
Sinclair has agreed with the Arsenal legend, suggesting that Hodgson needs to pick on form rather than reputation.
Noble has been in wonderful form for West Ham this season, as they have mounted a push for a top four place.
The central midfielder has been key in Slaven Bilic’s plans, and he had led by example at Upton Park.
Noble remains uncapped for England, however, and his chances are being selected for EURO 2016 seem slim after his recent omission.
Hodgson may argue his decision to pick Henderson over Noble was vindicated last night, as England picked up a 3-2 win over Germany with the Liverpool man starting in the contest.
