Liverpool fullback Johnson confident being England first-choice

Liverpool fullback Glen Johnson is confident of his status within England's World Cup squad.

Johnson was always confident of wearing the No 2 shirt in Brazil, even when his form was blighted by fitness issues and Tottenham's Kyle Walker took possession of the role in the World Cup qualifiers.

"I've played every game I've been fit for in the last four or five years," said the 29-year-old Liverpool defender.

"There was never a point when I thought I wasn't going to be in the squad. I don't think I've ever not been England's first choice."
