Cresswell gets his England chance

cresswellCandHAaron Cresswell has stepped into the England team against Slovenia this evening with Slaven Bilic declaring: “He deserves it.”

The left back dons the No 3 short for the Three Lions in an all change side named by manager Gareth Southgate and that will come as a big boost for ho and irons fans across the country.

Bilic is delighted to see him get his chance and has declared: ” “It’s not a surprise anymore. He is becoming a regular and there’s continuity and it’s great for him and us. We are proud we have a couple of players in England’s squad. Cress deserves it. He is very consistent.

“He had his ups and downs last season because of the injury he got in pre-season but he is a great player, a great pro, has got a great left-foot and he’s a very important age for England and he’s a player with a bright future. He’s a top player.”
