Will Jarvis get his England call?

Will Matt Jarvis ever get the call up to the England squad that so many of us Wolves fans believe he deserves?

Back at the beginning of September, we held a vote on Vital Wolves. The question was: Who will be the next Wolves player to get an England cap?

With Michael Mancienne featuring on a regular basis for England Under-21's and all other age groups before, many would have assumed he would have stormed the poll.

However the on loan from Chelsea defender only took 19% of the votes cast.

Instead it was 24-year-old Matt Jarvis who took the most votes, with a whopping 63%.

Poll Result:

Matt Jarvis 63%

Michael Mancienne 19%

Sylvain Ebanks-Blake 8%

Other 5%

Karl Henry 3%

Dave Jones 2%

But despite being tipped for a call-up over the last couple of months, he was overlooked for the Tuesday`s Euro 2012 qualifier against Montenegro.

"I probably am low profile, coming up through Gillingham to Wolves, we got promoted and now we`re trying to get ourselves established in the Premier League.

"I wasn`t in any of the Under-19s or 21s squads or anything." Jarvis told the Express & Star.

He continued: "Playing for England is something I`ve always dreamed of, it would be fantastic,"

"But nothing`s happened yet. I`ve had no feedback. No-one has phoned."

Vital Wolves Comment: The E&S believe he remains on Fabio Capello's radar, but I fail to see how that can be true if he has received no feedback?

I thought the FA put together a preliminary squad of around 35 players before each squad is announced? If Jarvis was in contention surely they would have contacted him at some stage?

Dont think any of your players will make it...Jarvis is a decent player but look at the talent ahead of him, Johnson, young, walcott, lennon, downing, SWP, etherington, albrighton and probably more, not saying he is a poor player but there are lots more better wingers out there who are english. Mancienne also, i dont really rate but he has alot of time to develop and Ebanks blake? He is a championship striker end of.

Jarvis is worthy of a call up - his play has been a cut above since we got promoted... but i agree with the vila, theres probably too much talent in front of him. And for those who ticked seb for an england call up, please can i get your dealers mobile.

No, he's not fashionable enough for Capello, but I really like him from what I've seen, a really tricky little player, nice amount of flair and dribbling skills, I'd give him a call up, especially if it was a friendly match. Whatever happened to having an England 'B' team? For me, while it might be deemed as a waste of time to some, it does give a nice experience to players who aren't quite at the top level yet.

If there was a B team though bernio would be still get in really? He is a left winger and etherington, downing and even albrighton would be selected above him and maybe more so it would still be difficult for him to get in.
P.Avfc
Albrighton might, but Etherington and Downing aren't exactly young, I wouldn't see the point in putting them in a B team because of how far down the pecking order they are. Albrighton and Jarvis would get in the B team because even if they don't make the team for another 4 years they still have time to make an impact.
