Middlesbrough's Woodgate to win England return

Middlesbrough defender Jonathan Woodgate is set to win an England recall for the crunch Euro2008 qualifier against Russia.

Woodgate returned to full training last week and played in Boro's 2-2 draw with Newcastle yesterday.

That gives him an outside chance of a recall because England boss Steve McClaren's squad has been rocked by injuries.

Woodgate said: "I hope when I'm playing again I'll be in the squad."
