Sol Campbell insists he has not given up hope of landing a spot in England's squad for the 2010 World Cup despite his recent move to lowly Notts County. The former Arsenal and Portsmouth centre-half is yet to feature under Fabio Capello.

"I would love to be in that World Cup squad for South Africa next year. Why not?" he told the News of the World.

"It's not as if I'm suddenly not going to be playing well.

"In the latter stages of my time at Portsmouth there were conversations with people around the England camp about bringing me back in and that was very nice to know.

"So you never know. Phone calls can go in, things can happen.

"I remember people said exactly the same when David Beckham went to play for LA Galaxy in the USA. But he's back in the England squad now and I think County could give the Galaxy a good game."
