Hull City midfielder Tom Huddlestone believes England boss Roy Hodgson could benefit from coming to watch a number of the players on show at the KC Stadium.
Huddlestone is one of several English players currently plying his trade under Steve Bruce, but he has yet to build on his four caps since making his debut in 2009 while at Tottenham.
The former Spurs man believes a number of his team-mates have the ability to make Hodgson’s squad, or at least catch the eye in the lead up to the European Championships in 2016.
Club captain Curtis Davies has been selected in previous squads but never played for the first team. Fellow midfielder Jake Livermore has not played for his country since 2012 but Huddlestone thinks the pair can impress this season.
The Tigers have rapidly improved under Steve Bruce and Huddlestone has urged the England boss to take a trip to East Yorkshire.
He told The Sun: “I don’t think Roy Hodgson’s been up here. But there’s a few of us to watch.
“Curtis Davies and Jake Livermore had a great season, playing regularly and full of confidence, myself playing regularly and feeling confident in a good team – so there’s a few of us that are always hopeful.
“Jake has been in the squad before, I think Curtis has been in the squad but hasn’t managed to get on the pitch.
“So there are a few English lads at Hull who would be over the moon to get back in.
“Me? I will always remain hopeful. Obviously I have to have another good season for Hull.”
