Chelsea fullback Ryan Bertrand is pushing to catch the eye of England coach Roy Hodgson.

The 23-year-old played a key role in Great Britain's Olympic campaign and then received his first England call-up for last week's friendly win over Italy, replacing Leighton Baines in the second half.

Bertrand said: "It was a fantastic experience for me to go to the Olympics and be part of the fantastic occasion that it was. It was that next step in international football.

"I managed to get on the pitch for 15 minutes the other night in the senior England team so I just have to concentrate on my club football and hopefully that will come with it."
