West Ham v Leeds: What has been said?
West Ham boss David Moyes believes Michail Antonio still has a chance of playing for England amid rumours he could switch allegiance to Jamaica.
Moyes said: “If I’m looking at it from a distance, Gareth Southgate has tended to choose some of the more youthful players over some more senior.
“But if Mick scores a bundle for us and helps us in the run-in then I’m still hopeful it might happen.
“In no way am I saying him choosing Jamaica would be a bad choice, but slightly for selfish reasons if he was selected for England it would mean he has got less travelling than if he does choose Jamaica.
“We all know when you get a bit older, if you have not been selected for your country you might want the opportunity to play international football elsewhere and if that happened I wouldn’t be telling him not to do it.
“I would be wishing him my best and saying, ‘Go on and do what you think is right for you’.
“But, in the same breath, you would think if he was having to go and play for Jamaica it would have an effect on travel etc, for someone who hasn’t been doing it since he was 20 or 21. That would be my only problem with that.
“At the moment, I just want him to keep playing well for us and the big thing will be for him to keep fit and in a good physical condition.”
