"It is a big year," he admits to chelseafc.com. "I would love to stay involved with England until the World Cup. I need to be playing regularly and well to do that, and we have a big squad.
"Now I've signed the extra year though it's up to me to come back in pre-season and onwards and show I can do that. Then we'll see what happens with England but if I am playing well I like to think I will have a chance."
