Nolan For England?
Former Newcastle midfielder Joey Barton wants Kevin Nolan to be called for the England squad. Yes ... Barton has Tweeted his approval of his former Newcastle team-mate.
Barton is currently on loan at Marseille, and although Nolan has not had a sniff of a call up, Barton says he is surprise the West Ham United midfielder failed to make the cut.
Joey Barton: "Good to see Leon Osman get a call up, about time. My brain is asking why no Kevin Nolan?
"Surely, he warrants a call up more than most? On Premier League goals alone, consistently for the last 8 yrs, he deserves at least a call-up.
"Not a fan of the latest craze, giving caps out so as players don't go and play for other countries. Doesn't sit well with me that..."
England face Sweden in a friendly match on Wednesday.
