Pardew backs Taylor for England

first_imgAlan Pardew has once again urged England manager Roy Hodgson to take a look at Newcastle defender Steven Taylor after watching him withstand a battering from Stoke. He went on: “They really do need to have a look at him at centre-half because I think it’s a problem position for England and his performance against [Peter] Crouch and everything else that they threw at us – because we had no height in the team. “Steven Taylor had to do everything on that side of it and he was brilliant.” Taylor’s hopes of winning recognition at senior international level have not been helped by a succession of injuries over the years, although he has been on the fringes of the squad in the past. Pardew admitted earlier this season that keeping the Greenwich-born, Tyneside-raised defender fit is something which may require a tailored approach. However, he has few doubts about his ability and firmly believes he has what it takes to warrant serious consideration. The 27-year-old, a former captain of his country at under-21 level, was one of the stand-out performers as the Magpies fought back from a goal down to defeat the Potters 2-1 in the Barclays Premier League at St James’ Park. Magpies boss Pardew said: “He was immense. Steven Taylor gave a performance of England standard.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more
