‘Should’ve Been Capped By Now’ ‘Joke That He’s Never Been Called Up’ Fans Debate West Ham Talisman’s International Snub

West Ham captain Mark Noble has never been capped for England despite making 473 appearances for the Hammers, and following the latest snub by Gareth Southgate for the latest Euro 2020 qualifiers against the Czech Republic and Bulgaria, fans have been speaking out.

Supporters on Twitter believe the 32-year-old has deserved at least one cap over the years, and they can’t believe that the midfielder has never been given a chance:

Noble has always been a solid performer for West Ham, and that is probably half the problem. His reliability means he never really stands out despite putting in 7/10 and 8/10 performances nearly every week.

Worse players have been given call ups off the back of a few decent games where they have stood out, and it’s disappointing that there hasn’t been one England manager who has recognised what Noble can offer the side at international level.

As a one-club man, he will, of course, be revered by fans regardless but he is a player deserving of more recognition.
