West Ham ace targeting World Cup berth

Matt Jarvis (West Ham)West Ham winger Matt Jarvis has revealed that he is aiming to be a part of England’s squad for next year’s World Cup.

The Hammers star currently has one international cap to his name, which he won two years ago under Fabio Capello.

Since then, the emergence of the likes of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has seen the 27-year-old slip away from the Three Lions’ squad, despite some impressive displays at club level.

But, Jarvis has set his sights on forcing his way into Roy Hodgson’s plans and hopes that he will get the chance to add to his solitary international appearance as the World Cup approaches.

“Obviously you have to focus on your club and playing for West Ham week in, week out but if you are doing that it’s in the back of your mind that you can get in [to the squad],” he told The Metro.

“When you have that one cap, you definitely want to add to it and I would love the opportunity to do that.

“If I keep working hard, hopefully that chance will come.”

Jarvis is thought of as one of the finest crossers of the ball in the Premier League.

His form has dipped a little of late, however West Ham chief Sam Allardyce is keen to partner his with Andy Carroll once again when the centre-forward returns to fitness.

Can Matt Jarvis force his way into the England squad?
