West Ham boss Allardyce: Roy should check on Tomkins

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce believes James Tomkins deserves an England call.

Allardyce has called on England coach Roy Hodgson to make a check.

"Roy should look at James," said Allardyce. "He has really matured and is playing very well and consistently.

"People can scoff all they want about me saying that but James has been playing consistently well for us.

When I look at opponents like Phil Jagielka and Gary Cahill, I don't see a huge amount of difference when I watch them playing against each other."
