The midfield maestro was in splendid form in Sunday's win against Newcastle United.
Playing centrally, he was involved in most of our attacking play at St James' Park and chipped in with the crucial opening goal in the 2-0 win.
Quizzed on the 29-year-old in his post-match press conference, Glenn insisted: "I thought he was the pick of the bunch out there.
"Hed showed great movement and his all-round play for 60 minutes was excellent.
He's getting back to his best and if he can stay injury free he will get better and better."
Glenn was naturally asked for his opinion on his international chances, to which he added: "I think he will be there or there abouts. Obviously it's not my decision but he continues to play well he'll be close.
"Sven Goran Eriksson plays with a four. Darren can play inside, out wide and can play down the left side as well. He's done it before.
"Good players can play in many positions and when it comes to tournaments, you do need experience."
Darren Anderton's name is cropping up in England circles again - and Glenn Hoddle believes he will be 'there or there abouts' if he can maintain his fitness this season.
