Manchester United veteran Rio Ferdinand refuses to consider his England career is now over.

Ferdinand has not appeared for his country since a World Cup qualifier against Switzerland in June 2011 and he was controversially excluded from Roy Hodgson's Euro 2012 squad for 'footballing reasons'.

"It is what it is," Ferdinand said in the latest edition of #5 Magazine. "I'm not being picked. The manager hasn't picked me. If I got picked I'd pack my bags and go straight there.

"I'm no different to anyone else - I love playing for England," he said. "If I'm not then I'll keep doing what I'm doing for Manchester United."
