Three Lions manager Gareth Southgate will announce England's 23-man squad for the World Cup on Wednesday, and not many surprises should be expected.
Given the wealth of experienced, talented and top players and stars the England boss can select his team from, Wednesday's list will surely court some controversies and divide public opinions.
The 28-year-old has three England caps to his name, with the last of those appearances coming last October against Lithuania.
Cresswell missed out on the November and March invitations having not particularly impressed Southgate, but considering his all-round form during the just-concluded Premier League season, he surely has done enough to earn a recall.
The West Ham star has assisted seven league goals - the most of any defender in the whole of the top-flight - and scored one by himself for good measure.
Tottenham's Danny Rose (0 goal, 1 assist), Southampton's Ryan Bertrand (0 goal, 4 assists) and Manchester United's Ashley Young (2 goals, 4 assists) are the three favourites likely to be selected to play at left-back or left wing-back at Russia, but none of them have been statistically better than Cresswell this season, and while numbers don't always tell the whole story in football, they surely don't lie.
With a 77% average pass accuracy, the former Ipswich Town man definitely ticks the box in terms of being able to play a pass or two, and he has no weaknesses opponents can exploit.
Strong in the air, Cresswell won more aerial duels per game (1.6) than the aforementioned trio, and is most certainly a man in form.
Southgate needs to get the best men on the plane to Russia if England are to have any chance, and Cresswell definitely deserves a spot in that squad. He did enough all-campaign to earn it.
