Both the Star and Sky Sports have both latched on to comments made by Wigan Athletic boss Chris Hutchings when questioned about Heskey and England
Hutch said 'I think he (Heskey) should be in that squad. I've got every confidence of him getting back in that squad,'
Now some people will think this ludicrous, how can Emile Heskey be included in the England squad?
He plays for Wigan Athletic and doesn`t score any goals plus he`s too old.
Well one of those statements is correct, he plays for Wigan Athletic
Emile Heskey has been a revelation since his move from Birmingham City last June
Most Latics fans were sceptical about Heskey`s signing yet he walked away with the supporter`s player of the season award
Heskey is in fine form again this season, match fit and looking like he could be getting back to the player he was when at Liverpool
He is also experienced, 43 England caps and over 400 senior appearances to his name
There will be four forwards named in McClarens next England squad and there must be a place for Heskey, he has the big match experience and is a better player all round than must of the other contenders
What about the other contenders for the England squad?
Andy Johnson (Everton), playing regular first team football should be included
Michael Owen (Newcastle), not match fit but always a threat should be included
Jermaine DeFoe (Spurs) squad member for his team but like Owen always poses a threat, he would definitely benefit from regular first team action, but should be included
Darren Bent (Spurs), big money move but only a squad member needs regular football and at this stage should be left out
David Nugent (Portsmouth), didn`t show anything at Derby on Saturday to suggest he is Premiership level let alone England level should be left out
Dean Ashton (Wes Ham), needs to get fit again after a year out with injury this squad too early for him and he should be left out
So the four forwards in McClarens next squad should be Johnson, Heskey, Owen and Defoe
