West Ham midfielder Mark Noble says England have plenty to be excited about the new talent coming through.
"I know, I play with them. Look at the likes of Steven Taylor, Tom Huddlestone, Ashley Young, James Milner, Gabriel Agbonlahor. Together we have got some great results playing some good football.
"Yes, for me the future for England is bright."
Noble has won the hearts of a West Ham crowd who like nothing better than an East End youngster breaking through from the ranks.
With a new four-year deal in his pocket from a close season when there was a huge influx of new players, Noble has been shown that West Ham rate him. Now he wants to repay that faith.
