Jon Flanagan 'in England World Cup contention'

Liverpool's Jon Flanagan reportedly emerges as a contender for England's World Cup squad in Brazil.

Liverpool's young full-back Jon Flanagan could be on his way to a surprise place in England's World Cup squad, according to a report.

With Jose Enrique a long-term absentee for the Reds, Flanagan has been a regular fixture in Brendan Rodgers's starting lineup this season and has earned rave reviews for his displays as the Merseyside outfit close in on a first league title in 24 years.

The People claims that England coach Roy Hodgson now sees the Under-21 star as a possible back-up option for fellow Liverpool right-back Glen Johnson.

His chances of making the squad for Brazil this summer have been boosted by the injury worries concerning Tottenham Hotspur defender Kyle Walker, who has been receiving painkilling injections for a pelvic problem.

Flanagan is likely to feature in Liverpool's encounter against fellow title challengers Chelsea on Sunday.
