‘Quality’ Michail Antonio should get England call-up, says West Ham boss Bilic

first_img Michail Antonio has scored an impressive 12 goals in his debut Premier League season West Ham manager Slaven Bilic insists ‘quality’ forward Michail Antonio has got what it takes to play for England.The 26-year-old has enjoyed a fine debut season in the Premier League after arriving at Upton Park from Nottingham Forest last summer.Antonio has been filling in at right-back for the injury-hit Hammers during the latter stages of the campaign, but has still managed to score 12 goals this term, with his latest coming in Tuesday’s 3-2 win over Manchester United.Antonio revealed back in March that he rejected the chance to play for Jamiaca in favour of chasing a Three Lions call-up.And with Danny Welbeck ruled out of Euro 2016 through injury, Bilic feels England manager Roy Hodgson could do worse than check out the Hammers wideman.“He’s quality, the way he is playing, the big impact that he’s had on our game and also on the Premier League,” said the West Ham boss.“I’m saying as his club manager he’s scored some goals, he’s made some assists, he’s defending really well.“Of course Roy Hodgson has got a good team, he’s not struggling for names. England qualified with ten out of ten wins so it’s very hard for some players to break in – somebody has got to get injured or somebody has to lose a place in his club long term.“But if you ask me does he have enough to offer? Yeah, definitely. He’s a player who when he’s one against one, he’s got pace, he’s got strength, he’s got the quality of going up and down, he’s dangerous on goal. He’s a great player for us.“So does he have potential? Definitely.” 1last_img read more

Credit: A. Deblais et al., Phys. Rev. Lett. (2018) More information: A. Deblais et al. Boundaries Control Collective Dynamics of Inertial Self-Propelled Robots, Physical Review Letters (2018). DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.120.188002ABSTRACTSimple ingredients, such as well-defined interactions and couplings for the velocity and orientation of self-propelled objects, are sufficient to produce complex collective behavior in assemblies of such entities. Here, we use assemblies of rodlike robots made motile through self-vibration. When confined in circular arenas, dilute assemblies of these rods act as a gas. Increasing the surface fraction leads to a collective behavior near the boundaries: polar clusters emerge while, in the bulk, gaslike behavior is retained. The coexistence between a gas and surface clusters is a direct consequence of inertial effects as shown by our simulations. A theoretical model, based on surface mediated transport accounts for this coexistence and illustrates the exact role of the boundaries. Our study paves the way towards the control of collective behavior: By using deformable but free to move arenas, we demonstrate that the surface induced clusters can lead to directed motion, while the topology of the surface states can be controlled by biasing the motility of the particles.last_img read more
