Capello Will Still Pick West Ham Stars

England Manager Fabio Capello has confirmed that he will continue to pick Scott Parker for England if he remains at West Ham.

The England manager, who has included Parker and team mate Rob Green in his squad for Wednesday night’s friendly against Holland rebuffed rumours that Parker’s international career could be put on hold should he remain at West Ham and play in the Championship.

However Capello stressed that ideally Parker would be playing in the top flight of English football:

“If he does not move then that is not my problem. He is one who can play with the national team,” Capello told reporters. “He is part of the group. If he is fit, he will be okay to stay with us. I will continue picking him. If I find a really good player in the Championship, I will pick him.

“I hope for him and for me he will play in the Premier League. It is important Scott plays in the Premier League. He is a focused guy – but they play more games [in the Championship] than the Premier League.”

Parker is set to start for West Ham against Cardiff at the Boleyn Ground in today’s game.
