Manchester City defender Micah Richards is staying calm over his continued England snub.

Richards believes he can make ­England’s European Championship squad — if Fabio Capello gives him the chance.

He told the Sunday Mirror: “People are saying I’m upset, but it’s not about that. It’s about working hard, trying to keep the form I’m showing. Kyle Walker is a fantastic talent and he’s getting a chance and Glen Johnson is the ­current right-back, players with Spurs and Liverpool, both top teams. So it’s just about getting a chance.

“The manager must think something of me. I played against France for 45 minutes and thought I did all right, but I just want more. I don’t want to rule myself out, but I don’t want to say I should be in there.

“I just have to keep doing well and try to achieve something with City.”
