Hughes says Wright-Phillips deserved of England recall

"I would be surprised if Shaun isn't in the England squad because he has been outstanding since he came back to the Club.

"If he is not in this squad then he absolutely will be in the next one in the New Year when he has had 20-odd games under his belt."


Hughes also goes on to credit the influence Wright-Phillips has had on the dressing room, with his positive outlook and approach:

"Shaun is great in the dressing room. It has been easy for him to settle right back in even though there is a different management team. This is his Club and he is comfortable here.

"The benefit from playing with a smile on his face and playing regularly is there for everyone to see."

I wonder if the squad though will perhaps come a little too soon for Wright-Phillips, with Capello wanting to see more of him to really put his disappointing time at Chelsea behind him, but for my money there isn't a more in form player who can fill that spot on the right at the moment.
