Callum for England

Manchester City v Wigan Athletic - FA Cup Final

It has been a difficult season so  far for Callum McManaman, recovering from injury and dealing with illness.

Although there have been signs in recent matches that he is getting back to form he just has not been the exciting player we saw cut Manchester City’s defence apart in May.

His season has needed a ‘kick start’ and now it has come.

The Daily Star quotes Roy Hodgson saying that  he has been following McManaman’s progress and he has a chance of going to the World Cup  finals in Brazil.

McManaman has already played for England at under-20 level. A step up to the full national team is a distinct possibility if he can get back to form. England just don’t have another wide player with his qualities.

This is good news for Owen Coyle and his Wigan Athletic squad that is progressing in Europe and steadily moving up the Championship table.

According to the media it looks like young Manchester United striker Will Keane will be joining Latics on loan. Keane is 20 years old,  6’2” tall and is part of the England under-21 squad with Nick Powell.

Keane has now recovered from an anterior cruciate ligament injury that kept him out of action all of  last season. The injury took place in May 2012 when he was playing for the England under-19 team against Switzerland. His twin brother, Michael, who is a defender, is also at Old Trafford.

The season is looking bright for Wigan Athletic.
