West Ham midfielder Kevin Nolan believes that his performances at Bolton and Newcastle as well as at Upton Park had merited an England call-up.

Even though he has built a reputation as a fully committed and goalscoring midfielder, Nolan remains uncapped by England - something that may always haunt him.

“It does hurt I haven’t got one I must admit and it does hurt a bit but it is something I have got to live with and I’m a big boy,” he said.

“I don’t know what more I can do to be quite honest, I’ve scored goals consistently for a number of years, I dropped down a division but consistently scored goals down there.

“I think I have at least deserved a call-up and a chance to prove myself at that level.”
