Glenn Hoddle thinks that West Ham United ace Michail Antonio should be included in Gareth Southgate’s England squad for the Euros this summer.
The 31-year-old has been in fine form for the Hammers this season.
Antonio has racked up nine goals and five assists in 24 Premier League games for West Ham (Transfermarkt).
The former Nottingham Forest attacker has firmly established himself as one of the most important players David Moyes has at his disposal at the London Stadium.
Glenn Hoddle backs Michail Antonio for England
The 31-year-old West Ham man has experienced problems with his hamstrings over the past few years. So perhaps participating in a summer tournament would not be a great thing for the Hammers.
Hoddle included Antonio in his England squad for the Euros, however, when speaking to the Mirror.
Now, Michy pledged allegiance to Jamaica at international level earlier this year (Sky Sports).
The 31-year-old is yet to play a game for the Caribbean nation, however.
So should Gareth Southgate and England come knocking ahead of the Euros, Antonio would surely be convinced to change his mind and switch allegiance back to the Three Lions.
And if he could be convinced, Glenn Hoddle certainly has a point.
Antonio would offer England something that they do not otherwise possess what with his raw pace, power and unpredictability.
And including him in the Three Lions squad might just be a masterstroke from Gareth Southgate.
