Ashworth will leave the Hawthorns at the end of the season.
“I speak to Roy once a month,” Ashworth told the Daily Express. “He has done what I expected with England. They are difficult to beat; they’re Roy’s teams aren’t they?
“He knows what he’s doing. He’s structured and he’s organised.”
What England need is a better supply line, ever more quality.
But Ashworth added: “If Roy needs a midfield player, I cannot just fly to Argentina and sign Claudio Yacob.
“But we have got a huge talent pool here so one of my jobs is to make sure we are identifying the right players and get more continuity."
