Real Zaragoza winger Jermaine Pennant hasn't give up hope on breaking into the England squad.

Pennant is at Barcelona this weekend and told the Guardian: "Learning Spanish is hard, very hard and people are worried about that, about loneliness and lifestyle. Going abroad is like going back to school and people don't want to break their comfort zone.

"It's a shame: it would be better for English football if more players went abroad – and Fabio Capello has said he'd like to see it more often."
