Karren Brady thinks Mark Noble should be in the England squad.

West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady has told The Sun that she can't understand why midfielder Mark Noble isn't in the England squad.

England came from 2-0 to beat Germany 3-2 in Berlin on Saturday night, inspiring hope and heightening expectations for this summer's European Championships in France.

Tonight, the Three Lions take on the Netherlands at Wembley as they ramp up their preparations for Euro 2016, and Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater is in line to make his England debut after an impressive season with the title-chasing Foxes.

Drinkwater's inclusion in Roy Hodgson's squad came at the expense of West Ham star Mark Noble, who remains uncapped at the age of 28 despite some great displays this season.

The central midfielder has been instrumental in West Ham's push for Champions League football, but his performances haven't been rewarded with a call-up that many fans feel he deserves.

Even after making 48 appearances for England at various youth levels, Noble hasn't made the senior squad, and having missed out again this time around, it seems that his dreams of representing his country won't come true under Hodgson.

Now, West Ham vice-chairman Karren Brady has offered her thoughts on Noble's situation, telling The Sun that she can't understand why Noble has been overlooked in favour of Drinkwater having been so impressive this season.

"Leicester’s Danny Drinkwater is on the verge of his first England cap and making the Euros squad," said Brady. "Someone who probably has booked his summer holiday is Mark Noble. It’s a shame he didn’t make the England squad and I can’t understand why," she added.

Do you think Noble should have been called up by England?
