Should Roy Hodgson Consider Lower League Players?

Should Roy Hodgson Consider Lower League Players?

Should England boss Roy Hodgson consider bringing into his World Cup squad players from the lower leagues?

With the exception of a couple of Premier League clubs, the likes of Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester City and Manchester United provide the majority of the Three Lions senior players, but should this be allowed to continue?

The point of this article is not for the author to come up with possible lower league players, potentially ready for an international call up but we at Vital England would rather engage with our readers. Do you have a name in mind and their current club?

For the purpose of this article the definition of a lower league club is any club which is not currently applying their trade in the Premier League.

Over to you.

I can't really see anyone outside of the Prem getting a call in the short term. there is always the situation where players are deemed to need CL football and to be playing at the highest level possible and its sad to say that the Championship isn't good enough and I don't see any obvious candidates to make a late call
