Sunderland winger Adam Johnson could be named in the England squad to face Denmark next month.
A couple of months ago it started to look as if Johnson didn't have a future with Sunderland, never mind England. The winger was struggling to make Gus Poyet's starting line-up and couldn't find any kind of form when he did get on the pitch.
In the last month, however, his form has been sensational. Since the 3-1 FA Cup third round win at home to Carlisle, the 26-year-old has scored seven goals and has four assists in just seven games, which includes a hat-trick away to Fulham and scoring in four consecutive Premier League games.
The winger has repeatedly spoken of his desire to play for England again, describing it as 'the best thing of all', and it looks as if his form could be rewarded by Roy Hodgson.
A call-up for Johnson would be richly deserved based on current form and he could be heading for a second Wembley appearance in the space of a week, with the game against Denmark coming three days after Sunderland's Capital One Cup final appearance against his former side Manchester City.
