Nolan, for me, is one of the great missed opportunities for England. People will say he is too slow, but I will give you Teddy Sherringham in return - and like Sherringham, Nolan has this invaluable ability to read the game and know where to be at the crucial moments. He's done it for years now and with top quality players around him, would score a stack of goals from midfield. With just three forwards in the squad, the situation was crying out for Nolan!
As for Noble, he has been playing and running his socks off this season and has done far more to deserve a call up than either of the Liverpool men.
