Allardyce: “Downing did nothing wrong”

Downing overheadSam Allardyce is standing by Stewart Downing’s international chance.

The Hammers ‘top man’ received a fair bit of criticism following the game against Scotland in midweek but the Irons manager didn’t see him “do anything wrong.”

And he was quick to defend the midfielder when he addressed the media at this morning’s press conference.

He said: “He had an injury in the first half which restricted his movement. I watched the game and I didn’t see him do anything wrong.

I know people have criticised his performance but I thought he did OK. He certainly hasn’t blown his chances of further international call ups.”

  1. Hear! Hear!
    Although injury certainly didn’t help Downing’s performance especially when considering the high tempo pressing game England played.
    Nor did the position he was asked to play in. I just hope it wasn’t a one off token cap!
