Hull City boss Steve Bruce believes Curtis Davies is capable of playing his way into the England.
Bruce said Davies should take inspiration from Southampton striker Rickie Lambert, 31, who has forced his way into the England reckoning.
Bruce said: “Curtis has started the season and played very well.
“When you look around, there are not that many young centre-halves pushing for a place in the England squad. Why shouldn’t he be looking in that direction?
“Look what Rickie Lambert has done. Who knows what might happen? Never say never.”
