Nolan delighted with career despite never winning England cap

Former West Ham United star Kevin Nolan says he is proud of his career despite never playing for England.


The 33-year-old possesses an unusual record of being the Englishman with the most Premier League appearances never to have won an England cap.

"I've spoken to England managers who've said: 'I should have given you a cap," he told Sky Sports.

"It is a frustration, but no regrets. There have been some unbelievable England midfielders [ahead of me], world-class players. The Gerrards, the Lampards.

"It's a bit sad that I haven't got a cap, but I'm just delighted to have had 400 plus appearances in the best league in the world and had three promotions on top of that. I'm delighted with my career."
