The two West Ham stars are yet to be called up by England, but could benefit if Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce becomes Three Lions boss.

Sunderland manager Sam Allardyce could finally recognise the international potential of two West Ham stars if he was to become England manager.

Allardyce spent four years at Upton Park, only leaving last summer with Slaven Bilic replacing him. 

And the likes of Aaron Cresswell and Mark Noble may fancy their chances of making the England setup if their old manager takes the reins of the Three Lions.

The former Bolton and West Ham boss is reportedly one of the FA's chief candidates for the vacant managerial role with England's national side, according to the likes of the Mirror.

West Ham supporters felt both Cresswell and Noble should have been considered for Roy Hodgson's squad for the European Championships, with England short of midfielders that were fit and in form and also plenty of uncertainty regarding the left back position.

It was the current Sunderland manager that signed Cresswell from Ipswich in the summer of 2014, and the left back played every Premier League game under Allardyce as he seamlessly adjusted to the Premier League.

Mark Noble also underlined his importance at the Hammers under Allardyce, winning his first Hammer of the Year award in the 61-year-old's first season in charge, and winning it once more during his tenure. The midfielder also began captaining the side more significantly side Allardyce.

They, alongside current Black Cats striker Jermain Defoe, could well get a greater a chance to turn out for their country if the FA eventually plump for Allardyce.
