Despite missing out on the latest England squad, Hull City midfielder Tom Huddlestone has refused to give up on his World Cup dream.
Huddlestone’s last appearance for England came in November 2012 in a friendly against Sweden, and his form this season for the Tigers has put him back on Roy Hodgson’s radar.
The 27-year-old has been one of Hull’s star performers in the Premier League season, and he has shown his ability after losing his first-team spot at Tottenham.
He has helped Steve Bruce’s side into 11th place in the Premier League, and the Tigers look likely to avoid relegation, with six points separating them from the relegation zone.
Despite missing out this week, Huddlestone is upbeat about his chances of making the plane for this summer’s World Cup.
“You can never tell how things will work out,” he told The Sun.
“When I was named in the squad against Sweden last season, I was more surprised than anyone. I’d only played about five times after injury but it was a huge boost.
“It made me realise you just have to keep doing your best and who knows what will come your way.
“The fact is, I’m very happy with my form, very happy with the club’s position in both league and cup and I couldn’t be happier with the way it has all gone since I came here at the beginning of the season.”
