Manchester United midfielder Tom Cleverley has received a glowing England endorsement from West Ham United legend Sir Geoff Hurst.

Cleverley impressed during his senior debut in the 2-1 win over Italy last Wednesday.

World Cup legend Hurst said: "Cleverley is a good footballer with great technique. I would make room for him in the team.

"I hope he stays fit and he can develop his England career."
