West Ham United fans impressed by Cresswell’s England performance

West Ham United left-back Aaron Cresswell has not established himself as an England regular, but he was handed a chance by manager Gareth Southgate in Sunday’s World Cup qualifier against Lithuania.

The 27-year-old made his full Three Lions debut after previously featuring twice for his country as a substitute.

After England secured their position in next summer’s World Cup finals in Russia with a 1-0 win over Slovenia, Southgate could afford to tinker with his team.

Cresswell has so far struggled to force himself into the first XI on a regular basis, but he did not do his chances any harm at the weekend in the Three Lions’ 1-0 triumph over Lithuania.

The Liverpool-born player featured as a wing-back in the match, and looked comfortable on the pitch.

He even came close to scoring his first England goal, but it was not to be as a penalty from Harry Kane was the only occasion when the ball hit the back of the net.

Cresswell has featured in all seven Premier League games for West Ham this season, and the fans hope that he can take his performance with England and bring it back to club football.
