Southampton defender Jose Fonte says teammate Jay Rodriguez deserves another chance with England.

Southampton defender Jose Fonte says teammate Jay Rodriguez deserves another chance with England.

Rodriguez was outstanding in the 2-0 defeat against Arsenal at the Emirates, his first game since his under-par England debut against Chile at Wembley recently.

Fonte told the Daily Echo: "You can’t judge a player on one performance.

“J-Rod’s been consistent for us and he deserves another chance at least for England.

“He’s a great player and so young.

“With the pace, strength and ability he has I don’t see many like him in this league and in the England squad so I hope Roy Hodgson gives him another chance.”
