"I have always felt when Wes is fit, he is the best natural defender in the game.
"He is like a lot of good Italian and Argentine players who pride themselves on their defending.
"He knows he is a defender, he knows why he is a defender and he concentrates on it. That is why he is such a good one.
"But whenever we talk about him, we always say he needs luck to stay away from another bad injury.
"England do have some good defenders. John Terry is a certainty to be picked and Rio Ferdinand would be the other for me.
"Ledley King and Sol Campbell are other options but Wes would be a good one to have.
"We would be absolutely delighted for him to get picked. He would certainly deserve to go."
