Will Ravel Make the 2014 World Cup?

Will Ravel Make the 2014 World Cup?

The speculation relating to whether any of the current crop of youngsters representing England at U21 level can make the huge jump to the full squad for the 2014 World Cup, in Brazil, is gaining in momentum.

On the back of his recent performances, many pundits are suggesting that Ravel Morrison could be the one to do so.

However, despite watching Ravel`s masterful display against Lithuania, the England U21 manager Gareth Southgate has his doubts about any of the U21 squad making the trip, remarking,

"I am not sure I would take any of them because I think there is such a long way for them to go and so much more to learn."

Sam Allardyce, asked a similar question, also seemed a little cautious with his response, commenting,

'I think it's a little early to tell. If he continues to be a regular player in our first team then I can't see any reason why he wouldn't get noticed and maybe be pushing that way.'

'I have to be careful with the amount of publicity that Rav gets to make sure that we just continue his growth slowly and continue him playing to the level that he's playing at and try and make him better."

'We've got to make sure there's no distractions that might put a young man off at this stage of his career which can happen. They can have their ups and downs, they can burst onto the scene, they can get lavished with praise and then lose their focus and when they lose their focus they can dip away again and we don't want that.'


Ravel might yet surprise us all, we can but wait and see can`t we!
