I think that it`s vitally important that at least one of Pompey`s English players gets into the England squad.
Portsmouth has to be seen as a club that players can progress their careers at. Winning trophies may take a while but England call-ups shouldn`t. Glen Johnson and David James both came here with an ambition of getting into the England squad.
Back to the title- Mark Hateley was the last player who played for England. His last match for England as a Portsmouth player was a scoreless draw with Chile in Santiago on 17th June 1984. That`s 22 years since Pompey had a player playing for England.
In response to heading criticism- I write articles (and headings) for my website readers and not for the websites such as NewsNow who choose to put my articles on their search engine.
