Steven Davis is delighted seeing Southampton teammates receive international recognition.

Davis is backing Saints' England trio of Rickie Lambert, Adam Lallana and Jay Rodriguez to fire the south coast side to Wembley - and cement their place in Roy Hodgson's World Cup squad.

The ex-Aston Villa star said: "They have all been on top form this season, and it's great for us that we've got the players there that are playing at the top of their game and playing with confidence.

"You can see each and every week the problems that they cause the opposition defences.

"I'm delighted if all three go to the World Cup. They've got to be at the forefront of Roy Hodgson's thoughts."
