West Ham ace: ‘I’m good enough’ for England World Cup squad

Mark Noble (West Ham)West Ham midfielder Mark Noble believes that he is good enough to warrant a spot in England’s squad for the 2014 World Cup.

The Hammers star is currently yet to receive a senior international cap, but has been a consistent Premier League performer for the London club.

Despite being yet to represent the Three Lions, Noble has captained the U-21 side, for whom he was a key man.

The 26-year-old – who has started every league game for West ham this term – feels that he has the ability to represent England in Brazil next summer, and is hopeful that Roy Hodgson will give him his chance:

“I believe I am good enough,” he told the Evening Standard.

“I have seen the players we have had here who have been in the England set-up and I believe that if I made that step up, I would be able to mentally and physically cope with it.”

Noble is known for his abilities in a deeper lying midfield role, which places him in direct competition with England skipper Steven Gerrard and the likes of Frank Lampard, Michael Carrick and, to an extent, Jack Wilshere.

The Hammers idol is renowned for his penalty kick prowess, which may be useful in a major tournament.

Does Mark Noble deserve to make the trip to Brazil next year?
