QPR striker Jay Bothroyd refuses to give up on his England career.

Bothroyd’s one and only England cap came in a friendly against France back in November 2010.

But he is ­determined to add to it ­after learning from his mistakes in a ­career which has seen him play for eight ­different clubs.

He said: “Everyone has regrets. I’ve always believed I am a Premier League player playing outside of the Premier League.

“That was probably due to my mentality when I was younger. But my head is firmly screwed on now.

“If I had the chance again, I would do things a lot ­differently.

“I am 29 now and I feel I wasted a lot of time while I was growing up, ­travelling around and not ­having any stickability.

“My goal is to make ­myself indispensable, no matter who comes in.

“I’ve played in the Premier League, I’ve played for my country. Now I want to do both of those on a more consistent basis.”
