Reading fans say Stoke fullback Griffin deserves England call

Reading fans reckon on-loan Stoke City fullback Andy Griffin deserves an England call!

The 31-year-old full-back has helped steer Reading away from the Championship relegation zone - they have lost just once in six matches - and to FA Cup heroics since joining from Stoke in January.

Royals fans are chanting "Griffin for England" at every home game, but the player accepts his international prospects are slim. Ahead of tonight's league clash against old-club Derby, the ex-Newcastle star said: "I don't think that's going to happen to me.

"I am looking forward to sitting at home with my feet up watching the World Cup on television, but it's nice to have that bit of rapport with the fans.

"Now I am playing regularly I feel fit and can cope with our rush of games."
