West Bromwich Albion boss Alan Irvine praises the recent form of Saido Berahino as the striker notches his sixth goal of the season in his side's 2-2 draw with Manchester United.

West Bromwich Albion boss Alan Irvine believes that it is only matter of time before Saido Berahino receives a call-up to the senior England squad.

The 21-year-old has been in excellent form for the Baggies and the Three Lions Under-21s this season, and he notched his sixth goal in the Premier League in the campaign in his side's 2-2 draw against Manchester United.

Irvine told the club's official website: "Berahino has been in great form and he deserves what he's getting as a reward. His application in training is top class. He's behaving like a top professional on and off the pitch and if he keeps doing that he has a great future.

"If he scores goals he has a great chance but Roy [Hodgson] will decide when the right time is for him to go him. I told him to keep doing the right things and the rewards will come.

"People will make those decisions and if he keeps performing like that he has a real chance of becoming a senior international at some point."

The Baggies are 14th in the Premier League with nine points from their eight matches this season.
