Bowen has been called up to the England squad on the back of a terrific campaign for West Ham in the recently concluded season where he scored 18 goals in all competitions.


The winger is expected to make his England debut in the international games next month but Jordan is circumspect about the player’s ability to make that transition.



He pointed out that his performances in the Europa League were not as good as they were in the Premier League and in international football he will come up against world-class defenders.


However, he admitted that Bowen has earned the right to show whether he is good enough to be an England player.



Jordan said on talkSPORT: “I am not sure Jarrod Bowen will be an international footballer.


“I am not sure his contribution to the Europa League campaign for West Ham was as compelling as his contribution in the domestic league.



“And they are going to be playing against European and world-class defenders in international games.


“I don’t know whether he can make that transition but he has earned the right to have that opportunity.


“Whether he takes that step is up to him.”


Bowen scored three times in the Europa League, but was ineffective in both legs of the semi-final defeat against Eintracht Frankfurt.
