Harry Redknapp has backed David James' England claims, but he does not believe he has a realistic chance of extending his international career.
"That kind of performance is what we have come to expect from David James," said Redknapp.
"I have been saying for a long time there is not a better goalkeeper in the Premiership than David James.
"In my opinion, he deserves to play for England. But it seems Steve McClaren has decided to look elsewhere, so I would be very surprised if he brings David back, even though his performances warrant it."
