Delighted Reo-Coker still focused on FA Cup

Nigel Reo-Coker is refusing to celebrate his standby call to England's World Cup squad and will instead concentrate on leading West Ham to FA Cup final glory against Liverpool on Saturday.

The dynamic 21-year-old was named by Sven-Goran Eriksson as one of five reserve players for the England squad, to crown what has been an imperious campaign for both himself and the Hammers.

However, the Premiership's youngest captain knows that he will need a huge slice of luck to make the final 23-man cut, and so is focusing on earning Alan Pardew's side some silverware to augment their top 10 finish.

He said: 'I'm not going to celebrate, I'm just going to concentrate on the cup final.

'Of course it's a great honour to be named but we have a real chance of winning something this season, and that's what I'm concentrating on for now.

'He [Eriksson] told me I'm on standby and if someone gets injured I'll be in the squad. I'm going with the squad on Monday to Portugal and it's a nice reward for me for a great season. I'm very happy to be included because to be honest I didn't really think I'd be going.

'Not once did I hear my name mentioned as someone who could probably go to the World Cup, when all the other names were being banded about. So it makes this moment even sweeter. I didn't really expect it and I had my holidays booked but it's a nice bonus for me.'

Reo-Coker has been one of West Ham's stars this term and his inclusion was warmly greeted by his team-mates and manager alike.

He added: 'Everyone at the club has congratulated me from the manager down and they are all very happy for me. I can't describe how I feel it's just great to be involved and I've got nothing to fear. You can't put it into words and it's rounded off a fantastic season for myself.
