England coach Roy Hodgson has put Wigan Athletic winger Callum McManaman on World Cup notice.

Hodgson insists the Scouser is on his radar.

"Take a guy like Callum McManaman," said Hodgson. "He was flying for Wigan at the end of last season and then he got that unfortunate injury."

A few seconds later, as is his manner, the England manager seemed to rule the Wigan man out of contention: "He would have to do something exceptional for this particular tournament."

And then ruled him back in again when he added: "But it is certainly not impossible."
