Cherries players must earn England caps - Howe

The temporary England boss was at Dean Court for the draw with Spurs and he was then at the Riverside for the defeat to Middlesbrough and that has led to plenty of speculation about who may be close to an England call.

The likes of Adam Smith, Simon Francis, Steve Cook, Charlie Daniels, Andrew Surman, Junior Stanislas, Jordon Ibe and Callum Wilson have all been mentioned in dispatches and of course Jack Wilshere could be in line for a recall.

When asked who could get the nod Howe told the Echo: "Who knows? It's not for me to pick the England team.

"I think if the lads continue to play as well as they have, and as consistently as they have, then hopefully that recognition would not be too far away.

"But they still have to earn that call and it's not going to be given to them."
