Garth Crooks campaigns for West Ham's Aaron Cresswell to earn England call-up

Aaron Cresswell

Garth Crooks has hailed West Ham star Aaron Cresswell.

Pundit Garth Crooks has told BBC Sport that he thinks West Ham star Aaron Cresswell should be in contention for an England cap.

The Hammers played out an entertaining 2-2 draw with Leicester City on Sunday afternoon, meaning they have drawn their last four games in the Premier League.

West Ham's push for Champions League football may have died down, but their fans did get to enjoy one remarkable moment against Leicester thanks to Aaron Cresswell's goal.

The left back, 26, joined the Hammers from Ipswich Town back in the summer of 2014, and enjoyed a superb season last term, impressing with his excellent cross from the left flank causing mayhem throughout the campaign.

This term has been similar for Cresswell, who is one of the best crossers of a ball in the Premier League - but this time, it was a goal which earned him great plaudits.

With the game against Leicester finely poised at 1-1, Cresswell unleashed an unstoppable strike into the top corner of the net, putting West Ham in front - though they did end up conceding a late penalty to draw the game.

Many West Ham fans believe that Cresswell should be considered for England duty ahead of Euro 2016, and pundit Garth Crooks agrees. Crooks told BBC Sport that Cresswell has 'a left foot to die for', and campaigned for him to be given a cap by Roy Hodgson after impressing again this season.

"He has a left foot to die for. West Ham's second goal was set up by their right-back and finished by the left-back," said Crooks. "No one could dispute that Cresswell's sensational strike was worthy of winning any game - only Leicester had other ideas. The way Cresswell is playing at the moment, shouldn't we be talking about him making the England squad for Euro 2016?" he added.

Do you think Cresswell should be in the England squad for Euro 2016?
