Portsmouth boss Redknapp: James can go on and on

Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp hailed his goalkeeper David James after his performance in yesterday's 1-0 FA Cup victory at Preston North End.

The 37-year-old has been restored in a Three Lions shirt since the arrival of Fabio Capello and has subsequently fixed his sights on being England's first-choice goalkeeper at the next World Cup.

James will be pushing 40 when the finals in South Africa come around in 2010, but he has rarely enjoyed better form than at present.

"He's such a perfectionist and will be around for a long time yet," said Redknapp. "He's a great trainer and it's not a problem for him.

"He works non-stop on the training ground and he studies videos of his performances every afternoon.

"He's absolutely dedicated and he's in such great condition."
