Swansea City defender Ashley Williams is shocked by Leon Britton's continued England omission.

Despite possessing the best passing statistics in Europe last season and excelling again in the Barclays Premier League this year Britton has not had a senior call up.

Williams told the Daily Mail: "I thought he should have had a call up last year and I was surprised that he didn't. It is nothing to do with me as someone who plays for Wales, but if you ask my opinion I think he is one of the very best midfielders in the country.

"That goes for this year and last year. How often does he have a bad game? He definitely deserves a call up."
