Hammers fans have long bemoaned a lack of recognition for their classy attack-minded defender.

Contributing a number of assists and some spectacular goals along the way too, Cresswell looked to have done enough to earn a place in England's Euro 2016 squad under Roy Hodgson.

He was snubbed, though, in what may have been a blessing for the player.

Injury denied Cresswell what would surely have been his first cap when the man who signed him for West Ham, Sam Allardyce, took over as England boss.
