Former Sheffield United and Birmingham City midfielder Curtis Woodhouse has suggested on social networking site Twitter that Newcastle United star Jonjo Shelvey would have been perfect for England against Slovenia.

The win saw the Three Lions book their place in the competition in Russia, but the performance of Gareth Southgate’s side left much to be desired.

Former Peterborough United player Woodhouse was following the match, and he suggested on Twitter that Shelvey would have been perfect for England against Slovenia.

Shelvey joined Newcastle from Swansea City in January 2016 for a transfer fee reported by The Guardian to be worth £12 million.
