Newcastle United: Fans want Jonjo Shelvey England call-up after Manchester City heroics

After Newcastle United pulled off one of their results of the season on Saturday afternoon at St. James’ Park, drawing 2-2 with Premier League champions Manchester City, one player in particular has been taking all the plaudits – with fans from across the division insisting that he deserves another shot for England. 

Is Jonjo Shelvey worthy of the Newcastle armband?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Raheem Sterling originally fired the visitors into an expected lead, feeding off David Silva’s acute pass to curl a brilliant shot past Martin Dubravka before Jetro Willems fired a stunning equaliser moments later.

It took until the last ten minutes before we’d see another goal, with Kevin De Bruyne scoring one of the strikes of the season with a brilliant half volley from 25 yards out.

As a result, due to his phenomenal impact and performance, Premier League supporters have been hinting at the prospect of an England call-up – here’s what they had to say on Twitter.
