Hammers midfielder Mark Noble believes he is good enough to play for the national side. Although Noble has represented his country at various youth levels, he is yet to find glory by being capped by the senior England team.
And there’s more…the 26 year old midfielder believes he has the qualities and mentality for being able to deal with the physical and mental pressure of being in the England team if he gets the nod from England manager Roy Hodgson.
Speaking to West Ham TV, Mark Noble stated:
“If it happens, it happens, but I am just going to keep on enjoying my football, getting on the ball, enjoying passing and creating stuff and if it happens, it happens”.
“I believe I am good enough. I have seen the players we have had here who have been in the England set-up and I believe that if I made that step up, I would be able to mentally and physically cope with it.”
Mark Noble came through the ranks of West Ham’s youth system and made his senior debut for the Hammers as a 17 year old in their 2-0 win over Southend in the League Cup in August 2004.
Noble has found the net on 31 occasions and has provided 40 assists in his 255 appearances for the east end club in all competitions.
So, Noble thinks he good enough for England, what do you reckon?
