Newcastle fans believe Jonjo Shelvey should be going to the World Cup

Newcastle United are on the verge of guaranteeing their English Premier League safety after securing a massive result away to Leicester City on Saturday.

Winning 2-1 against the Foxes, Rafa Benitez’s side are now ten points ahead of 18th-placed Southampton, albeit having played a game more.

With seven teams between themselves and the relegation zone with just a handful of games remaining, supporters can begin to relax and dream about next season in the top-flight.

Central to the win against Leicester was midfielder Jonjo Shelvey, whose recent impressive form continued with a vital opening goal.

Newcastle supporters are now calling on him to be selected for England’s World Cup this summer, believing he’s shown enough to be included.

Shelvey hasn’t played for the national side since 2015 but has his season been impressive enough to convince Gareth Southgate to include him on the plane to Russia?
