Stoke captain Shawcross retains England hope

Stoke City defender Ryan Shawcross hasn’t given up hope of representing England despite being ignored for the World Cup, Sky Sports has reported.

Shawcross’ only international appearance came in a 2012 friendly with Sweden and the former Manchester United youngster has said he hasn’t heard from England manager Roy Hodgson since. He added that he felt his form for the Potters was worthy of a call-up for the summer tournament.


“I thought if I had a good season, which I thought I had, I would have a chance but this time it wasn't to be,” Shawcross said. “It is a target of mine to get back in the squad, so hopefully if I can play well enough I can make it impossible for him to not pick me. That’s my mission for next year.”


Shawcross joined Stoke on loan from United in 2007, completing a permanent deal a year later. He has gone on to make almost 300 appearances for the club, scoring 20 goals, and was named Stoke’s player of the year for 2014.


Hodgson instead took Phil Jagielka, Gary Cahill and United pair Phil Jones and Chris Smalling to the World Cup, with Everton youngster John Stones named as a standby player.
