Former Tottenham star Jamie Redknapp was delighted for Scott Parker over his performance in England's win over Spain.
Redknapp wrote in his column for the Daily Mail: "I texted Scott Parker on Sunday to say 'Well done, mate'. I got one back that said he felt like he had been hit by a train!
"He was outstanding in repelling the Spanish attacks, always disciplined and returning to his position as guard in front of the back four. For this type of game, he is England's most valuable player. So, Fabio, why didn't you take him to the World Cup?"
