Blackburn Rovers boss Mark Hughes says left-back Stephen Warnock deserves an England call.

"Stephen has done very well since he's been at the club," said the former Manchester United striker. "He was involved in an intentional squad when he was a Liverpool player.

"But for whatever reasons he hasn't been involved when he's been playing for Blackburn, even though he's been great for us.

"He's done everything we've asked of him. Every game he has an influence.

"He's a good English left back and whoever gets the England job should have a look at him."
