West Ham boss Sam Allardyce is being cautious over the prospects midfielder Ravel Morrison's chances of making England's World Cup squad. "I think it's a little early to tell. If he continues to be a regular player in our first team then I can't see any reason why he wouldn't get noticed and maybe be pushing that way.
"I have to be careful with the amount of publicity that Rav gets to make sure that we just continue his growth slowly and continue him playing to the level that he's playing at and try and make him better.
"We've got to make sure there's no distractions that might put a young man off at this stage of his career which can happen. They can have their ups and downs, they can burst onto the scene, they can get lavished with praise and then lose their focus and when they lose their focus they can dip away again and we don't want that."
