Morrison has World Cup hope
10:35am Thursday 20th February 2014 in Sport
RAVEL MORRISON will spend the rest of the season trying to help QPR get out of the Championship – a move he does not believe will put a late call-up to England’s World Cup squad beyond him.
Having seemingly overcome a troubled start to his professional career, the 21- year-old midfield livewire finally came to the fore for the right reasons this season.
Morrison shone for West Ham after breaking into the first-team, scoring a fine solo goal in the 3-0 win at Tottenham, and quickly became an important player for the England Under-21s.
However, less than two months on, Morrison’s lack of playing time has seen him step down to the Championship to join QPR in a 93-day emergency loan and looks to have seen any World Cup chances go up in smoke.
The attacker, though, is not giving up and when asked if he can still make the plane to Brazil said: ‘‘Hopefully. It is a bigger step than it was, but hopefully it can happen, yeah.’’ He added: ‘‘I just want to help QPR get to the Premier League – that’s my only objective during my time here.”
