Fulham - Johnson for England?

Fulham - Johnson for England?

After our thrilling 3-1 win up at the Reebok Stadium, Andy Johnson has every right to be pleased with himself.

His performances, in recent weeks, have been top notch and many are suggesting he could well force his way back into the England squad.

But, when broached on the subject Roy Hodgson remained as diplomatic as ever, suggesting,

"I can`t say Johnson should be picked for England,"

"Fabio comes to our games and has seen him often enough to know if he wants him.

"But what he`s done for us is quite outstanding, apart from his goal. He gives his all for the team and as a defender it must be difficult to play against him."


Hardly forcing his name down the throat of Cappello but using a degree of subtlety to add weight to his case.

Over in the opposition camp on Saturday, Gary Megson was also full of praise for AJ remarking,

"He is as good as anything you come up against."

So, could AJ do a job for England or has his chance been and gone?

Your thoughts please!

Been and gone. He's produced for us, but I wouldn't think his performance to this point in the season warrants an England recall. Just being honest. Of course, if you're baseline for England call-up is Jimmy Bullard, then 'yes' he might deserve it.
