The West Ham Connection In The England World Cup Team

West Ham have always prided themselves as the club which won England the 1966 World Cup. Of course, Martin Peters, Bobby Moore and Geoff Hurst were heroes on that night. They were also West Ham United players as well. This year's World Cup, England also have a significant West Ham and ex-West Ham flavour to it. Players like Rob Green, David James, Matthew Upson, Rio Ferdinand, Carlton Cole and Jermain Defoe have all been mainstays of the new Capello regime.

Danny Murphy recently touted his Fulham clubmate, Paul Konchesky for the vacant England left back slot. I think Konchesky has been playing very well this season.

A possible world-class England XI made up of Hammers and ex-Hammers players could be on the cards in South Africa. Take a look at this!
