Fulham head coach Slavisa Jokanovic believes Ryan Sessegnon is ready for the international stage after he scored again in an impressive 2-1 win at Derby.
The 17-year-old bagged his 10th goal in 12 matches and Jokanovic has no doubt he could cope with an England call-up.
Jokanovic said: "I started working with him when he was 16 years and two months or something like that and I believe he can be part of the English national team for the World Cup.
"I cannot recommend him to people but nobody can make mistakes with this kid. Experience is important but he is a really expert player for his age at this moment.
"I will repeat, if the national team don't take this decision this time, they will push him for the next European tournament.
"It's evident that if he doesn't have any injury problems, he will be a top player.
"He is not a kid, he is a man and he gives myself, the club and his team-mates many things and we try to support him and make him still better than he is right now."
