Man City winger Wright-Phillips delighted with England performance

Manchester City winger Shaun Wright-Phillips was delighted with his performance for England in midweek.

Wright-Phillips scored one and made one as the Three Lions came back from a goal down to win 3-1, in what was England's 500th international win.

He admitted to The Sun with a grin: "I was delighted with that. It was great to get out there and show what I can do.

"It's great playing in an England shirt, because playing for my country was always my dream. The World Cup is not far away and I would love to make the trip to South Africa with the squad.

"I don't think I did myself any harm at Wembley. But I don't look at it as if I have already booked my ticket as a result of the Egypt game.

"I realise there is a lot of competition for a place in the team, a place in the squad. There's David Beckham, Aaron Lennon and Joe Cole for starters.

"So I am taking nothing for granted. I know I just have to keep giving 110 per cent for Manchester City and for England and then hope I get the nod.

"If I do, I will be absolutely thrilled. It will be a real high point in my career."
