West Ham United have posted a Twitter message suggesting that England manager Gareth Southgate ought to pick Mark Noble for the upcoming UEFA Nations League games in June.

The Three Lions face the Netherlands in the competition's semi-finals on Thursday 6 June, with the winner taking on either Portugal or Switzerland three days later.

Noble is a bona fide West Ham legend, coming through the ranks at Upton Park and rising up to the position of club captain, making 467 appearances along the way (Transfermarkt).
