England keeper Joe Hart has no problems in taking a penalty for his side but hopes Sunday's Euro 2012 quarter-final against Italy does not come down to spot-kicks.

"I'd put my name forward 100 per cent. But hopefully it won't come to that," the Manchester City stopper revealed.

"Penalties are a lottery but I think we've got some takers and I'd back myself in a tournament."

Hart also revealed he has practised taking penalties as much as the rest of the England squad.

When asked about how much he practised, he said: "As much as anyone else, I do like to take my penalties."
