West Ham United boss Gianfranco Zola has again pushed for Scott Parker to be selected for England's World Cup squad.

Zola championed Parker's cause, with the news that Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry is out for four weeks.

"I feel for him but I think if they decide to take Scott Parker on board, they won't be disappointed. He has been our player of the season," said Zola.

"For me personally, he has been exceptional and an inspiration for others. If you ask me I would say 'take him', but I am his manager. I know that Fabio Capello will do the right thing."
