That would put him in line with Mikey Antonio, Gianluca Scamacca, Said Benrahma, and Maxwel Cornet. None of Jamaica, Italy, Algeria or the Ivory Coast qualified for the tournament.

That means they face a period of rest, instead of having to play in the scorching desert heat in Qatar.

With the likes of Arsenal, Spurs, Liverpool and Manchester City sending the majority of their players to the tournament, it could end up being a major boost for the Hammers in the second half of the season.
