Tony Pulis has predicted that Saido Berahino will make England’s Euro 2016 squad, if he finishes the season in fine form.
Berahino has come good for West Brom, firing them to victory over Leicester for his seventh goal of the season.
And Pulis, whose team are 13th in the table and host Manchester United on Sunday, feels Berahino has a chance to prove himself to Hodgson ahead of the European Championships.
“He’s done brilliantly the last couple of games,” the West Brom head coach said.
“Let’s hope he really, really hits form from now and the end of the season and everything changes quickly.
“I want to enjoy watching the team for the rest of the season and I don’t want the thought of the money niggling away spoiling my enjoyment.
“If he can score five, six goals in the next 10 games and play as well as what he has done, there’s no reason why he wouldn’t have an outside chance, for me, to get selected.
“What Saido’s got to do more than anything else is get on the pitch and work very, very hard and show the qualities he’s got and score goals.
“I’m not telling Roy who to pick or who not to pick, I wouldn’t do that with any national manager – that’s their job, their responsibility.
“But what he can do is give him a little bit of a headache if he plays really well between now and the end of the season.”
