Mark Noble still trying to Feature in English National Team

Mark Noble says that he has not given up hope of featuring for the England national team. The 28-year-old has played in almost every level of youth national team.

However, he has not been able to feature for the senior team even once in his career. This comes as a major surprise given that Noble has been one of the consistent performers for West Ham since his debut in 2004. As one of the experienced Premier League names, Roy Hodgson may decide to call upon the West Ham star for the upcoming Euro 2016. This is due to a number of injuries especially in the midfield.

The latest squad announced by the England manager for the friendlies against Germany and the Netherlands does not feature Noble once again. However, the West Ham United midfielder is unconcerned about this aspect and says that he still believes that a door will open for him in the future. Time, though, is fast running out for the player at 28. Noble’s inclusion to the national team has been supported by names like Tony Gale, who is a former West Ham star.

Massimiliano Allegri reckons the recent results have brought Juventus in contention

Massimiliano Allegri reckons the recent results have brought Juventus in contention for League glory in Italy, but, he has admitted it would not be that straightforward considering the fact that Internazionale is going pretty strong.

According to Allegri, it would require some serious effort to displace Internazionale from the top.

There’s a 6-point gap between Juventus and Internazionale with each team still having 22 games left to play.

So, it’s very much possible to overcome the deficit in the time duration that is there, but, Internazionale is currently looking strong in all the areas and it’s hard to imagine that they would drop any easy points to give a sniff to Juventus.

Juventus, however, needs to be consistent and hovering around the top.

To Juventus’ credit, they have been able to make a good comeback after being slightly patchy in the starting stages of the summer.

They are presently on a bit of a winning run with 6 wins in a row.

They beat Fiorentina 3-1 in Turin the other day and managed to get back in top 4 in the standings for the first time in the season. Continue reading Massimiliano Allegri reckons the recent results have brought Juventus in contention
