Southampton full-back Nathaniel Clyne believes that his excellent start to the season should be enough to get him into the England squad.
The Saints defender has been in terrific form so far under Ronald Koeman, helping the South Coast side to rubbish any claims that they may struggle after a summer in which a number of star men were sold.
While his defensive performances have remained strong, the former Crystal Palace man has added goals to his game, with an opening weekend Premier League strike against Liverpool followed up with a stunning effort in the Capital One Cup win at Arsenal.
With England boss Roy Hodgson having put his faith in new players of late after the disastrous World Cup showing a few months ago, Clyne is hopeful that he’s done enough to earn himself a chance on the international scene:
“I think I’ve done pretty well and have got to keep performing well and hopefully my chance will come soon.” He is quoted by The Mirror. “If I can do well I can get the call-up.”
