West Ham midfielder Kevin Nolan believes that his performances have warranted an England call-up.

Kevin Nolan has admitted that he is disappointed with not being handed an England cap during his career.

The West Ham United midfielder has impressed many with his performances on his return to the Premier League but the 30-year-old is yet to win recognition from the senior national squad.

Nolan said: "It does hurt I haven't got one [England cap] I must admit, and it does hurt a bit, but it is something I have got to live with and I'm a big boy.

"I don't know what more I can do to be quite honest. I've scored goals consistently for a number of years, I dropped down a division but consistently scored goals down there.

"I think I have at least deserved a call-up and a chance to prove myself at that level."

Nolan is expected to start for the Hammers against his former club Newcastle United on Sunday afternoon.
