Bruce suggests the form of midfield pair Tom Huddlestone and Jake Livermore and defender Curtis Davies warrants a possible shock call-up to the Three Lions squad ahead of this summer's World Cup in Brazil.
"Who am I to do Roy Hodgson's job?" he said. "But there's always a shock and I wouldn't be surprised if one of them might sneak in.
"Huddlestone and Livermore have had a sniff of the England set-up before and since Curtis Davies walked through the door he's had a wonderful first season with us.
"All they can do is keep playing well and keep knocking on the door. There's always one or two shocks, there's a long way to go before the World Cup and injuries can set in.
"They'd never let you down. They've got a great attitude and a good work ethic - those three, in particular, ooze it."
