After yet another fine performance from Blackburn Rovers midfielder David Bentley for the England under-21's it HAS to be time for him to be given the chance to step up to the senior side?
Hours after Bentley had excelled once again for England at under-21 level (becoming the first Englishman to score at the new Wembley during the 3-3 draw with Italy, with Matt Derbyshire also among the goals) the senior side once gain struggled as they could only manage a 0-0 bore draw with Israel in their latest European Championship qualifier.
With so many of the current England squad struggling and change needed, if nothing else Bentley's continued form for club and country surely has to see him introduced into the set up when Steve McClaren announces his next squad (assuming he'll get the chance!) to 'freshen' things up, as they have clearly gone far past stale…
After his stunning 25-yard strike and Man of the Match performance Bentley said:
"All my family are here and to go down as the first Englishman to score at the new Wembley is fantastic.
"I have the confidence that I can be part of the full England team, and this is the place to put yourself out there and perform.
"If I get the chance, I'll grab it with both hands."
I personally don't think Bentley could do any worse than what we are currently witnessing, for me he's got the best delivery of an Englishman since David Beckham.
Do you think it is time Bentley gained his first senior call up? Comment below…
