Pennant puts Liverpool ahead of England

Jermaine Pennant admits he'll accept being ignored by England if it means winning silverware for Liverpool.

"Of course I want to play for England," he told liverpoolfc.tv. "It's everyone's dream to play for their country and I'm no different.

"I know the manager said I was close to being included, but obviously I wasn't close enough.

"All I can do is keep working hard for Liverpool and see what happens. Liverpool is my priority. If it came down to a choice of winning the league with Liverpool or playing for England then there's only one winner there. It would be Liverpool every time.

"It's so long since we won the league and I'd love to be a part of the first team to do it for many years."
