The manager of Everton FC, Roberto Martinez, has hailed Gareth Barry for his performance in the match against Aston Villa and has said that the 32 years old midfielder can still make a comeback to the England team.

Barry was in great rhythm the other day at Villa Park and he guided the Toffees to a comfortable 2-0 win.

The England manager Roy Hodgson was also there to watch the game. He had actually come with the purpose of having a look at the young guns, but, he would have certainly been impressed to see one of the English veterans playing that way.

Barry is actually a contracted player of Manchester City, though you can have a 3 Strikes bet with Unibet that he won't be there at the end of the January transfer window. He had joined Everton on loan at the start of this season and he seems to have settled down pretty well on Merseyside. He has been impressive in all his 5 Premier League appearances for the Toffees so far.

In the press conference after the game against Aston Villa, when Roberto Martinez was asked about Barry and his chances of making a comeback to his national side, he said, “He is an underrated player. He has been around since quite a while and has got experience of more than 500 Premier League games, but, he never gets that much credit.”

“He is a guy who doesn’t need to prove anything either in club football or in international football. He has almost won all the titles and he is still a valuable asset for any side in the world. There is no reason why he can’t come back to the England team.”

Barry had played his first match for the Three Lions against Ukraine 13 years back. Since then, he has made more than 50 appearances for the England side and has scored 3 goals.
