“But as manager of West Ham I have a right to say my opinion and I really don’t understand why Mark Noble is not in the England team.

“Running, tackling, skill-wise especially, he’s one of the best English midfielders. Big club bias? In the squad you have some players from bigger cubs who are not regulars in their teams.

“It shouldn’t be like that, especially in England. Has he been overlooked? Well, write about it! You should make a demonstration in front of the FA.”

Bilic hinted that Hodgson’s thinking could be based on favouritism – but admitted he too had favourites when he was in charge of his country.

He said: “When I was the manager of Croatia there were some players, not that I didn’t fancy, but that I preferred other players.
