His performances have many tipping him for an England call-up including Shearer.

On 'Match of the Day', the Geordie hero said: "I would have him in my squad.

"I'm not saying he should start, but if England want to chase a game and put someone on to try and find that special pass in behind into the path of a forward, then he can do it.

"We've made mistakes in the past with England taking players you can't rely on because of injury."

While comparing Shelvey's situation to Arsenal's Jack Wilshere who has only 12 starts in England's top flight.

"When I compare it with Jack Wilshere - he's had 12 Premier League starts this season and it's a huge gamble again and I don't think England can take too many gambles and I don't think he (Shelvey) would be a gamble."

England fans up and down the country agreed with Shearer's sentiment on Shelvey.

Wilshere or Shelvey? Who do you want to see in Southgate's 23-man squad?

Let us know.
