David Moyes: Aaron Cresswell deserves England recall

West Ham United manager David Moyes believes Aaron Cresswell deserves a recall to the England national team if he maintains consistency in his current form.

Cresswell has three England caps of which the last came back in 2017 but he has since improved in his performances for the Hammers particularly this season.

“First of all, I’d say that Aaron Cresswell has been excellent for us, on both occasions I’ve been here he’s played very well,” Moyes said as quoted by FourFourTwo.

“I think he’s got to an age of maturity where he’s understanding the game better and his reading of it and he’s playing very well.

“And I do think he can play a couple of roles because he’s left-sided, it wouldn’t be a surprise if Gareth (Southgate) called him up in the future.

“There are no more international games until February or March now but if he keeps up the form he’s in and keeps playing the way that he does, then he’ll certainly be getting watched there’s no doubt about that.”

“Gareth has got a really good squad of players to pick from. I do think that Cressy’s form is getting more recognised.

“If he continues in that form for the next few months then I think Gareth would certainly consider him because he can do a couple of jobs.

“England have got good left-backs. Maybe they could do with a left-sided centre back in a three because he’s good on the ball.

“But it’s not for me to pick Gareth’s team. He’s done very well with England.”
