David Bentley for England
Is the possibility of Blackburn Rovers starlet David Bentley one day being called up for England at senior International level really that unthinkable?
With Bentley's fine form this season really starting to prove testament to the undoubted talent he has always had I made a comment recently on a possibility of a future England call up to which Vital Blackburn member Clint replied:
"Its just right that he gets a call up into the English squad at sometime, England need an attacking rite winger to complement Downing on the left…"
Bentley has been scoring goals a plenty for the England under 21 side and has long since be regarded as a future England talent, and as such Arsene Wenger was reluctant to let one of his prized assists leave Highbury (as it was at the time), but once it became apparent Bentley wanted to move on to get the first team football he deserved Wenger was left almost powerless to stop him.
If Bentley maintains his early season form, his range of passing, quality on the ball and the crosses he is putting in are almost always inch perfect, even if his fellow team members aren't quite as alert then surely at sometime the telephone will ring with Steve McLaren on the other end?
McLaren is known to like his out and out wingers and as well as Steven Gerrard is playing it's not really seen as his favoured position so in time, should he move inside again does Bentley have a place with his name all over it waiting for him? At 21-years-old he still has plenty of time to realise this dream…
