Stoke boss Hughes: Time for Shawcross England recall

Stoke City boss Mark Hughes says skipper Ryan Shawcross deserves an England call.

Shawcross has admitted he doesn't look out for the announcement of squads anymore because he's not anticipating being brought in from the cold.

But Hughes said: "He's been given 20-odd minutes in a difficult situation and a lot of criticism was thrown his way, very unfairly.

"We think it's harsh Ryan not getting a look in but we don't pick England squads.

"I accept he's been out injured for this one but I think if he'd been fit and well he must have come into Roy's thinking. It would be crazy if he hadn't."
