Antonio’s back!


michail-antonio-west-ham-stoke_3387473Michail Antonio has been called up to the England national squad for the third time ahead of the side’s fixtures against Germany and Lithuania.

The midfielder has been in amazing form for the Irons all season and is the Club’s top scorer with nine goals.

Antonio will be hoping to make his international debut for Gareth Southgate’s men as they first travel to Dortmund to face the world champions in a friendly fixture before taking on Lithuania at Wembley in FIFA World Cup qualification.

The  leading Hammer of the Year candidate has regularly spoken of continuing to deo it at club level and believing his opportunity will come after first being called up by one-match-in-charge Sam Allardyce.

Now new boss Southgate is set to give him his chanc after de-seletving him from his first squads.
