He said: “Staggering! Everything has been said really. If he never comes to watch a game, there’s not much we can do.”

With the team losing a host of centre-backs throughout the years, the Potter’s chairman Peter Coates is also wondering why the club’s player of the year last season isn’t getting a call up for his second cap.

Manchester United duo Phil Jones as well as Chris Smalling are out injured, Rio Ferdinand and John Terry have retired, while Everton’s Phil Jagielka has yet to find his international form, prompting questions to why the Stoke centre-back is constantly overlooked.
