Stoke City defender Robert Huth believes teammate Ryan Shawcross will soon be called up to the England national team.

The 24-year old has represented his country at U21 level but following the retirement of Chelsea skipper John Terry, Huth feels that Shawcross is the man to fill the void at centre-back.

"Wonder if Shawcross will get a chance now," the German posted on Twitter.

"My option he should. Fast, good in the air and reads the game well."
