West Ham’s ex-Man Utd youngster Ravel Morrison tipped for England call-up
Ravel Morrison’s excellent start to the new season could be rewarded with a call-up to Roy Hodgson’s England squad.
The West Ham midfielder could be the surprise call-up for next month’s decisive World Cup qualifiers against Poland and Montenegro, according to the Daily Mail.
The 20-year-old has only played five Premier League games for the Hammers, but his performances so far this season – including a goal in front of Hodgson in last week’s defeat to Everton – have caught the England manager’s eye.
The youngster appears to have moved on from the off-field disciplinary problems that convinced United to part company with him in 2012.
Given the must-win nature of the forthcoming matches, it would be understandable if Morrison was drafted into the Under-21s. But given Hodgson’s track record of throwing the likes of Raheem Sterling, Ross Barkley and Wilfried Zaha into the senior squad, he could select the Hammers man for the qualifiers.
