Ravel Morrison (West Ham)

West Ham manager Sam Allardyce believes young midfielder Ravel Morrison will break into the full England side ahead of next summers’ World Cup in Brazil, as reported by talkSPORT.

Morrison has starred for club and country over the past two weeks with a stunning solo goal for the Hammers in their 3-0 win away at Tottenham followed by a brace for England under-21’s on Tuesday night.

The 20 year old has come the fore this season after moving to Upton Park back in January for just £500k, immediately being loaned to Championship side Birmingham.

An impressive pre-season has seen Morrison become one of the first names on the West Ham team sheet and Allardyce doesn’t see why Roy Hodgson will ignore him when it comes to future squads if he continues his fine form.

“It’s such a long time away,” Allardyce told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show.

“Ravel has to focus on the next performance. He needs to maintain the same standards he has been showing and, if anything, improve on those. That will certainly keep the attention around him.

“In the end, maybe after Christmas, if he’s still looking as good as he does now, Roy Hodgson might think he’s one of the younger players he might want to take to the World Cup.”
