West Ham's Upson Hopeful for England
Matthew Upson, like Robert Green, although he has been in excellent form for West Ham had been ignored by McClaren for the England team. Even though Ferdinand and Terry were unavailable for England's last two internationals McClaren stil decided to ignore the West Ham defender.
Upson however is now hopeful that a new England manager may revive his international chances,
"I hope they will wipe the slate clean and give everyone the opportunity."
